The latest relapse has shown no improvement. I'd say, if anything, things have got worse. My right hand is barely functional now and even worse I keep dropping things (so far today my lunch and a pot from the fridge which then split all over the floor).
So, back to the steroids... it is the really aggressive course this time. Nearly £30 at the chemist to get all the required medication.
Twelve tablets for seven days, followed by six tablets for seven days and finishing with three tablets for seven days.
I addition the yellow tablet (which gets taken twice a day) to protect my stomach and the calcium tablet (also twice a day) which given the size is fortunately chewable. There are also my two regular tablets to add to the morning batch and a sleeping tablet at night as steroids rob me of sleep.
Phew! Hopefully the steroids will work and things will get back to normal soon - otherwise I may have to learn to become left handed!
