    I have been on 40mg/daily of Predisone for almost 3 months. I lose handfuls of hair daily; mood swings are becoming unbearable; headaches are hard; sleeping is non-existent without a sleeping pill; nerves are shattered; dehydration is constant; and the biggest thing that’s stressing me out is I have lost almost 20 lbs. What the heck is that all about? I thought weight gain was a given when using steroids. Should I be concerned?
    With all that said, my muscle issues are being repaired (pain has eased tremendously). I am putting up with all the other “crap” because mobility is most important to me. I am now being reduced off the meds (very slowly). Hopefully this will work without any repercussions. Will my hair grow back????
