I have been prescribed Prednisolone for a complaint (I can't tell you what the complaint is as I can't pronounce it, let alone spell it, but it's to do with inflamed blood vessels in my head. ) Anyway, my face is now like an overblown, startled balloon and I just HATE looking in the mirror. Where is the face I have seen for 50+ years? I shouldn't really complain I suppose as the tabs have stopped the pain and I can function. Also, they have have helped with another medical complaint-gosh, I am being a drain on the old NHS aren't I? Now, does this balloon syndrome lesson as the dose goes down or will I look stupid for the whole time I'm on them? This could be for 2/3 years. I know people talk about being moon faced on steroids and that does sound quite romantic, but I feel I look a fright!! My OH and friends have said they can't see the difference. I'm making appointments for all of them at Specsavers!!
