On Prednisone - worried for my bones - any experience?
 
Hey you all! I haven't been on the board in awhile. Been happily living my life and taking my calcium, vit D, strontium and tons of exercise. Then back in Sept. I came down with Pityriasis Rosea, a skin disease that causes an very weird rash but also caused my immune system to go completely haywire. The only course for me has been a rather long round of Prednisone -started it in September and have to stay on it through December. Started at 60 mg and am now decreasing. I'll be hopefully down to 10 mg by the end of December when I should hopefully be able to stop. I know this is not good for my Osteopenia which has been slowly improving since I have been on Strontium. Anybody have any experience bouncing back from a course of Prednisone. I'm worried for these "bones-o-mine".
