Fibromyalga and cortisone
I am an M.E. sufferer with Fibromyalga. I have been on Prednisone for a couple of years. Is it okay to stay on cortisone (5mg per day of Prednisone)?

Mallyblue, it won’t affect the fibromyalgia negatively, if that is what you’re asking. Taking prednisone every day might have negative effects on your health, but not more because you have FMS. Good luck.
