    I hope that you are beginning to feel better. Prednisone made my heart race as well. Did they give you anything to counter act it?

    Sorry to hear.. we first realized my reaction to the prednisone before diagnosis when we were treating joint pain. I'd only taken the first round of the prednisone pack and woke around 3am with heart rate at 170. It is great for what it does, but can also destroy the body.. have they tried any type of anxiety meds to treat the heart rate?

    If I am still my pulse is usually in the 80's but races upward from any activity.

    Hi drz. Haven't seen you writing here for a while.
    I hope your symptoms are 'manageble', and that your heartrate is within the normal range again.
