Your post is identical to my current problem. You posted 2 years ago but please tell me how your hives cleared up. I too am on the predisone and swear I am allergic to it...
I read your post and feel the same way as you do. It's been slowly progressing for me since March. I don't seem as bad off as some, or maybe I didn't let it go on as long, but this is still maddening. I get them all over. ...mostly during the night when my immune system seems to have fallen asleep with me. Then they will subside (not really disappear) around noon every day.
I kept complaing to the Dr., so he put me on Prednisone as follows:
10mg 3x a day for 5 days
10mg 2x a day for 5 days
10mg 1x a day for 8 days
I'm nervous about this weight gain side effect I keep hearing about. I'm 5'2" and 115 pounds
I'm looking for someone to keep in touch with about this and compare notes. If you can, email me at ***@****
