I have had a very strange week and am just now being coherent enough to try to look back and put the pieces together. Last Monday, I called my doctor to get a refill on a script. He decreased my prednisone dosage from 20mg to 15mg (I had been weaning down from 40mg at 5mg increments). I started that new dosage that same day (last monday). By Tuesday night, I became an emotional mess. I cried and cried and cried about EVERYTHING. This went on until Thursday night. Then starting on Friday, I have been in what I can only describe as an "altered" state of mind and have had a severe migraine. At times, I feel that I haven't been able to trust my own thoughts. Think maybe something has happened to effect my brain. Maybe the reduction in prednisone is to blame? Too much of a change for me to handle? Or maybe the reduction allowed for the inflammation to reoccur? This has been quite scary for me. Has anyone had any similar experience? Or does anyone want to give me some advice? Thanks :)

I just thought to check for a thread on DS that talks about Adrenal Fatigue. It's been driving me crazy lately. I'd love to chat with others about this!
