I too have had a similar experience. I had taken two weeks off from going to the gym and started to taper down from prednisone. After twenty minutes on the elliptical I had a shortness of breath and blurry vision. I too was scared. I took a few days off to let my system get use to the new dosage of prednisone. Soon enough I was back at the gym. Unfortunately I am going through an awful flare and has kept me out of the gym for almost three weeks
. I think I am feeling brave and go tonight when it's not so busy ( the bathrooms are less busy at night). Good luck to you. I hope you are on the court soon feeling better.
