I feel like I've been hit by a truck. I ache like a motherfucker and all I want to do is sleep. I slept until 10:30 this morning and I don't ever do that. Usually I'm up by 8:30 or so on the weekends; plus I was in bed by 10 last night so that's alot of sleep. It's not the flu -- I think it has to do with me going off the prednisone. After 13 months of steroids, I finally stopped taking them. And now I feel like crap. I did some internet research and sure enough, fatigue and muscle pain are signs of prednisone withdrawal. Coincidence? I don't know but I hope this shit passes quickly 'cause this shit sucks.
- had this to say:
I have the same problem. Took prednisone for a few weeks for an upper resperatory infection and it was great. Literally felt 20 years younger. now I've been off them for a few days and I have zero energy. All I want to do is sleep. Let us know how you progress.
