In June I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis that turned into a nightmare of a flare just before Thanksgiving.  I am now on many medications, one of which is Prednisone, which is wreaking havoc on me.  It wasn’t so bad when I was taking 40 mg, but to get the inflammation down, I was bumped to 60 mg a day.  My face and abdomen are now changing shape, I’m having severe night sweats (from it and other meds) and now I’m having stabbing knee pain.  All to get rid of inflammation…how ironic that we’re given something to take to counteract one problem that leads to other problems.  Can’t wait to wean off of this stuff for sure!
