I have completely come off prednisone recently. My mood seems to be improving and my acne that was on my shoulder area and face is almost completely gone away. And my joint pain is finally gone. while i was tapering my spine really hurt and my right knee and ankle swelled up a little for no reason. my torso was so tight i couldn't even fully sneeze, but I can now that i'm completely off.
My UC symtoms are coming back. mucus in the morning with some blood. :( But I think I know why. It may be from being off prednisone, but i really think it is mainly b/c i have been eating lots of sweets and my roommates cereal and milk. not a good Idea when you think diet relates to your UC. I am going to try SCD diet again, but after my Cousin gets back from Iraq next week, b/c were having a thanksgiving/homecoming dinner for him on saturday.mmmm.
