HI everyone, I have been wondering and probably should know but don't, why we take steroids for PMR?
What do they do? I know they stop inflammation, but how?
also the fact that the adrenal glands stop working while on steroids, Is this why they are taken and why do they need to stop working or is that just a side effect of steroids?
I started wondering while at the chemist waiting for a pescription and saw a supplement for adrenal support, should we take that as it seems that the slow tapering is because of the adrenals coming back to work, then shouldn't we help them? and thus be able to taper faster?
so many questions, I don't blame anyone if they don't have the time to answer.
thanks for all your help so far
