Jim- Did the Prednisone make you weird like it did me? I did not sleep for 10 days!!!!! other side effects included: ringing in the ears (LOUD), continual thought processes, involuntary body twitches, and a rapid heartbeat. I will NEVER again take any medicine similar to that!! Also, every test I have ever gone through has ALWAYS come back that everything is okay! Funny, it doesn't feel okay!?!? I have vomiting and pain on a continual basis. I am anxious to go to the Adhesion Clinic and get back to my life.....this is not living! Stay strong and God be with us all!! Dena
