I have had a terrible sore throat (red, inflamed, dry) for close to a month. ENT has prescribed 5 days Prednisone (60mg, then 50, 40, 30, 20 and 10mg.), but he did not seem too familiar with CFS. My question is if anyone has had a similar sore throat experience and if you have had steroids with CFS? I have read that steroids with CFS can be problematic for your adrenal system. Any advice you can give would be greatly appreciated. It seems like if steroids are supposed to settle down your immune system, that you will not be fighting whatever is causing the sore throat as well. But I would hate to not take something that would resolve this dang sore throat if there is not much in the way of side effects. I wonder also if there is a problem with this dose of prednisone causing irreversable damage. Thank you!
