I have been diagnosed with polymyalgia rheumatica along with my fibromyalgia, cfs/me, arthritis, etc and rheumatologist prescribed daily prednisone ... I have heard all the 'wonderful' side effects, especially weight gain, h2o retention and mood swings.. I trust my doctor but am afraid of all the side effects and hope the treatment benefits outweigh the side effects... Anyone have any info? I would appreciate it very much... Thanks from ohio!
