I posted a few days ago about being diagnosed with myasthenia gravis. Thanks to everybody who responded--treatment's going well, I'm feeling fine and the prognosis is pretty good. You'd rather not have it, but there are a lot of worse things.
Reason for this post, though, is that I've just started on prednisone, a moderate dose for a couple of weeks, then taper down as far as I can. I know the long-term side effects, and in my case I think it's worth the risk, at least as an experiment. But I'm wondering about the effects on day to day activities, appetite, sleep patterns, whatever. It's a pretty common drug, and I figured there'll be people out there who've taken it. Any comments are welcome--Thanks.
