Sorry to hear you're having troubles.
Prednisone is bone wasting, both an initial loss, and a sustained loss over a prolonged long term use. Generally, you've got to be on pred longterm for over a year to get significant bone loss. However, everyone responds differently with some have a much more dramatic loss early on.
Any talks of supplements or drugs to boost your calcium levels?
