First of all I hope you find this forum as helpful as I have, but sorry you have to be here
Second of all, I have been on Oral steroids 3 times since my diagnosis in 2009 and am pretty confident that my full recovery from each relapse was attributed to the prednisone. I on the other hand was on 1250mg(25 pills) every second day for 10 days. It doesn't by any means work over night though
I too, like Karazhan didn't see significant recovery for about a month, but I did notice slight improvements everyday. Good luck to you! Again like Karazhan said don't ever feel you are boring anyone here....I have found the more detail you can give the better! Take care!
