Hope you don't have to go to the hospital while you were gone everyone on the message board was worried about you, you contribute so much, it sounds like you contribute in all areas of your life hope it gets better and you're on the mend and whoever's being negative to you just ignore them this is supposed to be a positive place Who could be negative to someone as sweet as the cake lady and I have only known you for short while

I hate going to the hospital partly because they don't let you sleep and partly because you don't know who your room mate will be and partly because it's no ones business how much I pee :)

So the hospital has no beds I could go sit in ER for god knows how long until one became available but with the increase in pred the chest pains are going away. She did increase my pred again to 60 mgs a day for a few days then down to 50 and so forth She said she will call me in the morning to see how I am holding up. So far the pred is making me wake up drenched in drenched in sweat and my stomach is like a roller coaster. Hopefully I will be able to hang on.

yea cakelady 60 mgs is enough to make you feel like that, at least your not eating the house last time i was only on 40 & i gained 6 lbs in 1wk i was eating everything. do you have any stomach meds like prilosec, carafate, or reglan they really help when you have to take prenisone so much if you ask your dr for something ask for carafate liquid 1gm it coats your stomach & helps within 5 min it has gotten me out of a lot of bad spots ive had 3 ulcers so i know what works for me. but you dr. will. see if it would go with your meds good luck for the next few days take care

Ugh! Last time I was on Prednisone, I was on 50 mg. and couldn't sleep, as in at all. Anxious, irritable, palpitations, hunger--like iI went to the Steven King Supermarket and loaded my cart with one of everything.  But if this is what it takes to get rid of the pleurisy, it's a few days of misery to get (hopefully) long-term relief. Wouldn't it be nice if there was a FUN cure for these diseases? "Ms. Cake, I'm writing a scrip for one hot fudge sundae every four hours. Don't skip a dose, and remember, pasta increases the effectiveness, so don't skimp on the ravioli." :0 Hang in there, chum.

Everything is in the smoker and I made the ungrateful people breakfest

I just think it is sooooooo unfair that I can't breath and I have never smoked a day in my life it's not fair
