I have had addisons disease for 5 years treated with prednisone I can not taper to the 5 mg and have been on 40 mg for three years also contracted lymes 6 years ago salmonella 10 years ago I know I am gradually slowing down but took the flu shot a month ago and I have absolutely no energy now and everything is just sore and achy. Tylenol helps some to push through and exercise helps to when I can. involved with agriculture so chores always have to be done but some days its a chore. I blame the flu shot for now but there are so many factors to consider. The prednisone has me pre diabetic. Thoughts would be appreciated.
