I wanted to let you all know how I am doing....
Got some good news from the Doctors
I have no muscle disease or nerve disorders according to the test that have been conducted..
All blood test were normal or negative for what they tested for
They have determined that the prednisone that I was taking was poisoning me...I can't tolerate steroids....they cause my muscles to shut down. They are taking me off of the prednisone slowly...as the dosage drops...I am getting stronger
I do have fibromyalgia which I will have to contend with for the rest of my life...It is a chronic pain and fatique condition that has it's good days and bad days.
I have lost 70 pounds and the doctors are very pleased with that.
I am sorry for the long e-mail.
Please feel free to send this to the central region folks if you would like....
Some of them might be interested in what's going on
