First of all... Hello to all and thanks to all for all the glorious amount of info on this forum!
My question is related to the prednisone taper... I am having awful symptoms and want to know others take on this..... I have googled my eyes out already and nothing quite matches.
My short story...I am 32 .... I am not diagnosed with ms. I am going though the process however I am still on the positive side of fence that I will not be diagnosed. I have never had the symptoms to support the diagnosis until this ON.
I woke on a Sunday morning with bad vision in right eye... This got worst in a couple days until I went to eye doctor thursday then to eye specialist Friday.
Sat, sun, mon iv steroids (cloud 9! Yahoo) the iv portion went great. I did not sleep much but felt great.. Eye sight was coming back by Monday and by end of week it was fantastic.
I will have follow up with MRI and eye doctor to watch eye.
So back to the taper... I started at 12 pills and I am at 1 pill today....
I have extreme fatigue
And the scary part is dizzy and what I would guess is vertigo? I feel like the floor is turning sideways every once in awhile. I try to keep still and not move my head too fast... But when it comes is is shocking... I have never had this before.
Any advice would be helpful... And perhaps this is just part of the process but I am a little nervous..
Thanks in advance
