Sorry I've been so quiet. I tapered down to 10 mg of Prednisone per day last week and have definitely felt the lowered dose. And not in a good way.
I also have something weird going on with my eyes, which I will eventually get around to seeing an eye doctor about. I also started running a fever again on Friday, which is somewhat mysterious since it hasn't turned into anything and I thought I was done running random low-grade fevers.
The excitement of my week, however, will be spending Tuesday in non-binding mediation for my uninsured motorist claim regarding my ongoing neck and back problems that stem from an August 2006 car accident. Sigh.
I also see my rheumatologist on Thursday, who I assume will be as disappointed as I am that my pain and swelling has returned with the lower dose of Prednisone. Oddly, the slight edema I've been having on the Prednisone hasn't gone away with the lowered dose like I thought it would.
Anyway, I've been trying to minimize my online time because it aggravates my eyes to look at my monitor, so if I owe you email, I hope you'll understand.
Whew! - This has been me all summer :-/ *Thank God for air conditioning! *
