I have been diagnosed as a severe and persistent asthmatic since 2010. I know some of the triggers with the most common one being chronic sinusitis and (possibly) related post nasal drip. I seem to survive from steroid burst to steroid burst. I have been on / off Prednisone for 10 years now. I have tried numerous times to come off of it with only limited success for limited periods of time. For the last 1.5 years I have ranged from 10 mg to 30 mg per day with periodic 50 mg bursts every other month. One of the many side effects is about 110 lbs over weight for I cannot seem to balance my diet with high drug intake. I am on a host of other meds as well but it is the constant chronic sinusitis, Prednisone, asthma viscous cycle that has destroyed my life. Is there anyone on here that can relate to these issues? I live in Madison, AL by the way, which I understand to be a war zone for allergies (probably highly related to my chronic sinusitis). I just want to swap war stories and find out if others are out there fighting what seems to be a loosing battle.
