Last week I was able to wean myself down to 30mg of steroids with very little problems. Then I started having issues with my words again. I spoke with Dr. Williams last Tuesday and he put me back up to 60mg with instructions to slowly taper down to 40mg. Then we would talk again to make it an even slower taper down to 30mg. Unfortunately, I didn't get there. 60mg isn't cutting it right now, so when I spoke to him yesterday, he bumped me back up to 80mg of steroids, and I am going to get another MRI of my brain and my cervical spine in the next week or so to see what, if anything is going on. Please pray this gives him the answers he needs to plan our next steps in treatment.
