Yep, I concur with much I have read in these reviews. Suffered badly with . for 6 or 7 years, wouldn't touch steroids, heard bad things about them. About 8 years ago I tried them due to feet swelling up double size. Worked instantly, virtually no side effects except for a feeling of extreme well-being! Nowadays I go on 40mg one day, 35mg, then 30, 25 etc . an 8 day course. Works mostly, but these days it really messes with my head. I'm also on Ibuprofen most of the time. Having said that I'm on the SCD at the moment and many . symptons gone but this diet is really messing with my head!!! Overall it's been very positive in helping me live a normal life.
