I am a F/56...diagnosed with FMS & CFIDS 11 years ago. It has been a struggle to find what works for me. I found 100% relief of my pain and fatigue when put on Prednisone 20 mgs. This was over three years ago. Since then I have tried to taper down and go off, along with switching to Hydrocortisone (which only helps at a higher dosage.) I want to go back on Prednisone. I hate being in pain and feeling like I need to go to the hospital.

Polymyalgia rheumatica diagnosed 7 years ago ... Prednisone only benefit ... Blood pressure issue, atrial fibrillation, cholesterol issue, with extreme fatigue and almost chronic pain, which shifts from one location to another. Neither Savella or Lyrica effective. Multiple medications caused Barrett's Esophagus, which is being treated successfully, so far. What are the dangers of current medications? I am so sorry I have nothing positive to offer. I welcome any suggestions. Thank you
