Usually when I'm in a flare just a small raised dose of prednisone works almost immediatly and then I'm weaned back down to my normal low dose. Well this time they gave me a higher then my normal high dose and I'm slowly being weaned down but as soon as I hit the next lower dose I feel sick again and I'm back to sleeping non-stop and hardly able to move let alone take care of myself. This is the first time this has happened to me. Is it common?? Does it happen to you? I will call my Rheumy in the morning to let them know whats going on. But I was wondering if anybody else has ever experienced it. I'm also supposed to go down to the next lower dose tomorrow and I'm worried if I should go ahead and lower or just keep it at the one I'm at until I get ahold of my doc. I just hope this doesn't get much worse!!
