I have been on and off 7-9 day prednisone dosing for 1 1/2 years for acute inflammation and DDD also have recieved multiple epidural injections. My last oral dose was early Aug. This is the very 1st time I stopped the medication early as I developed SEVERE moonface. It has diminished somewhat, but I still have a swollen face. With this, I have had no weight gain. (I am 5'5" and weigh 120 lbs) In addition, I am having menstrual flow every 2 weeks that lasts 7+ days. When can I expect to have "my face" back and a routine cycle. Is there any helpful suggestions to decrease the swelling in my face? (I do already follow a low sodium diet) I want my face back!!!
