International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day Is On May 12, 2018
Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

    I am dependent on 6 mg Prednisolone (2.5mg taken around 5-6 am plus 1mg taken on waking with another 2.5mg taken lunchtime) plus 2.5 mg hydrocortisone around 4 pm and have been taking steroids since 2002.

    Yesterday I was out and forgot to take my 2nd dose of 2.5mg Prednisolone. Around 3 pm I started to get the following symptoms and I thought it might be helpful to those of you who wonder about your adrenals -

    Kept wanting to eat, it was quite difficult to control, normally I am not like this at all

    Strong shoulder aches followed by strong backache and later legs and arms were aching badly

    Body was fatigued because I had had a good walk earlier but brain was hyper

    Really needed to lie down

    Headache building\

    Vision not quite right

    Pains in feet

    Empty, sore legs

    Legs spiking and tingling

    Pains in fingers

    Really needed to use my oxygen concentrator for 45 minutes to feel better

    Stinging/gritty eyes

    Luckily I was due to start a new strip of Pred so I was able to go and check to see if I had taken it and of course I hadn't. I had taken the 2.5 h/c but THIS HAD NO EFFECT WHATSOEVER.

    Within an hour of resting and taking the 2.5mg Pred all the symptoms gradually disappeared apart from slightly tired legs which was expected because I had been walking for nearly 40 minutes in the woods.

    Hope this helps some of you sort out what is going on in your body.
