Diagnosed with Giant Cell Arteritis and been given prednisone. I am struggling with the drug and have a lot of side effects.
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I have been given prednisone to get rid of the inflammation in the blood vessels. I have been on prednisone for 3.5 months. The high dosage lowers the ESR, they lower me to 40 mg, the ESR goes up, raise the dosage, ESR goes down. It's been a roller coaster and I feel like I am stuck on the medication. I can't stand it any more.
