i know it has been a long time since i posted anything on here overall im doing good I'm still on predisone but its 10 mg but ive been on it for almost a year but good news is i haven't beenhospitalized in almost year as well. Its working but i still worry about long term affects.
When i was hospitalized last may i was having more back flow in my heart than what was normal. Which causes me to have shortness of breath and heart racing. When that happens i usually go into the er for a breathing treatment and still its like helps but its treating a symptom not the problem. I go see cardio next tuesday because im still having the back flow problem. They believe it could be hypertension or something along thoes lines.
While on the predisone i have gained unnecessary weight and i have no idea how to keep my weight down since i have a pension for soda and junk food. I've realized that to be healthy could actually take alot of the stress off that i have with school and my health ..
I'm trying to get a referral from my doctor to go to uc davis medical but there proving difficult. I know i have Addison but with other problems occurring i do want a second opinion on those. Even my doctor i had previously before the new one said i should go to UC Davis medical since the clinic i go to has minimal resources and only can do so much. they still haven't figured out what caused me to be coughing up blood in my mucus last may they do know that they had to put my immune system in remission i.e the preisone.
How im handling it is depressing i try to distract myself and i cant seem to focus on my school work for school. I believe that being one more quarter away from graduation is what my main stress point right now. Also trying to find a job in this economy is not helping. I was able to get on my mother insurance through her work i.e. the need to go to UC davis for that was the reason she put me on it.
thats my update
hope everyone is doing well and staying healthy. any comments on how i can lose weight or keep it down while on preisone is helpful have a good day everyone
