Re: Just diagnosed

I am into my third month of prednisone and last week was bumped up to 50 mg. because I was still having progressive weakness. I have tapered myself back to 20 because of pounding heart and shortness of breath. I really hope I can take the meds and get through this. It is really rough. I am irritable, angry, weak, tired and now am getting some atrophy of my hand. I don't know what to do next, since the docs aren't really helping.
