Hi. Just wondering who is on low dose cortisone or whos tried it and whether it helps / helped or not. I would love to be on it but i get an awful reaction the 1st few days of taking it which makes me stop. thats only at 5mg a day or less. i remember it used to give me loads of endurance but now when i try it i feel like im "getting something" by day two - sore throat and cold like symptoms etc and feel systemically weird. Apparently those low doses arent sposed to shut the adrenals down, but even if i take it for 3 or 4 days in a row, the day i stop, i feel so terribly weak and shaky (more than usual) and like every little stress (like doors closing etc) is going to stop my heart! very scary. Im worried if i stayed on it for a few weeks even id almost die if i stopped! Id really love the endurance it gives though! sigh. Chris.
