gilbert you need to calm down this is not fatal at all. This is a condition that is 100% curable and you can go back to your norma llifestyle if treated properly, unlike people with other conditions they have to live with it. However you can cure it and go back to what you were before. Just be careful of doctors and their advice most do not know much and could make things worse.
The prednisone is a good start I guess but when you feel OK with the medicine try to tell your doctor to taper the medicine VERY slowly. So that it never comes back and youll be ok.
Youll be OK. You caught it early, i really wish i was in your shoes mine has become chronic because it was undiagnosed for nearly a year.
You can talk to me anytime if you need someone to talk to. I know the panic attacks from heart pain is really debilitating as well + i constantly read papers about
this disease so i can help u in that regard. Yesterday I had a flare by the way and had a panick attack from it, im much better today though.
