Hi Pat, that’s interesting and explains a lot … but not all! I keep asking the GPs and Neuros whether steroids would be worth trying - As you say, they don’t like prescribing them for ppms … nowadays! I say that as my mum had a regular but periodic supply of prednisolone throughout her time with ppms. It was clear they gave her a boost, but only for a few days, and it was always explained that long term use would weaken her and could have many other negative effects. You can only say what you see (or saw) though, and she seemed to fare a little better taking them, than I do in not taking them!
Is it fair to say that with ppms, you’re not immune to the boost which steroids can offer, but they could weaken you further, when avoiding them and trying other options would not? … if you get my drift!
I’ve probably just given a good example of the well used phrase ‘every case of ms is different’ … even when there s a genetic link!
Best wishes, Chris xx
