Did those dermatology symptoms re-appear with flare-ups the disease?
Hi, After all this time I have just begun to start treatment. I started with predisone 60mg for two weeks then 60mg one day and 40mg the other. Now I am on just 40mgs. Once the meds got decreased I had only one flare up on my hand, but my other symtoms started my skin itches, I am very tired I could fall asleep the minute I stop moving or sit down, lack of appite, and once again sleepless nights. I found out you have to stay hydrated or you end up with very painful muscle spasms. I ended up in the ER .
My disease went into total remission while I was on chemo-therapy for breast cancer. The symptoms reappeared about 18 months after my chemo-therapy was finished. This time it has been limited to a mild rash on my shoulders and backs of my hands,but a maddening red, itchy scalp. I take predisone and paquenil. I see my doctor next week and wonder if my medication may be increased to help my itching head.
