The saga continues...
I did make it to the Dr following my last post. I got a steroid shot in the um... hip. I got a round of prednisone. I was told to take Benedryl at night, Zyrtec in the morning, Zantac and Prednisone twice a day. The rash cleared up quickly. Much to my relief.
The following Friday was my last dose of medicine. I was glad to be done. I don't like how I feel on Prednisone - or Benedryl. But it was finally over. Or was it?
By Wednesday, the rash was reappearing!! CRAP!! Now what? I called the Dr Thursday. Begging to be seen or get more prednisone. I was promised that they would get a message to the nurse and she would let me know what the Dr wanted to do. They were mistaken. The nurse never called me back!
So, I called again Friday. This time the nurse did return my call and I was given 5 more days of the Prednisone. Ugh. I am irritable. On edge. Let's face it... I'm more than a little bitchy thanks to this medicine. And I'm also living in fear that once I run out, the rash will again rear it's ugly head all over my face.
