current flare started at end october last year. lost over 40lbs.
im currently on 50mg of prednisolone a day for 3 weeks now and have another 3 weeks to go before doctor said to taper down by 10mg every 5 days.
i was hospitalized 4 weeks ago and had 7 days of hydrocortisone/steroid injections. 50mg 4x a day. i got out of hospital 3 weeks ago on monday, thats when i started the 50mg 1x day.
im having all the side effects except weight gain. i feel horrible and terrible and just off, and grumpy and moody etc...can't sleep at all. im a mad woman.
but, my psoraisis is gone and my skin looks fabulous.
everyone i see says im the best looking/glowing unhealthy person they've seen. i look great, but feel like crap.
