The endocrinologist we saw this week has recommended that I taper to a lower dose of decadron steroid. We have started that process and due to the change is probably contributing to my body reacting with extreme tiredness and headaches. I spent all day in bed yesterday (Thursday) and have a low level head ache. I feel extremely weak. Today for a dr. appointment we used a wheel chair to get from the car to the dr. office. This is a new adjustment for me to the idea of "disability". We hope as I adjust to this new level of decadron (3mg), that the symptoms will gradually subside. In the meantime, these days are a challenge. I don't have much energy for anything.
