Before my diagnosis I was also going to be put on prednisone
I was positive however that some kind of infection was behing my illness.
When I read more I realised that prednisone
the immune system and this is what is suppose to be necessary when treating "auto-immune ilnesses".
However, if it is an infection that is causing your illness then prednisone
(steroid treatment) will likely cause an increase or worsening of symptoms.
