I'm getting a lot of headaches after increasing predisolone doses and a dexa shot. I also have this discomfort in my throat area(achy, thirsty). Is this normal? What can I do about it? :/
Also, I feel more stressed all the time too and get these break downs. Any tips on how to release this stress? Thank you!

Amy - Unfortunately, steroids do that to people. You just have to ride it out. Some people exercise to relieve the stress, some watch funny movies, take walks, etc. I usually gave myself time during the day to cry when I needed the release; I'd go into the bathroom at work for five minutes, cry, then pull myself together and go back at it. At home, I'd give myself some quiet time in my room in the evenings away from my 3 kids. A half an hour wold usually do it. Everyone has different tricks that work for them. You'll get through it, just take one day at a time and know that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
