It is regretful that you have experienced these side effects. There is a lot of data regarding the long term use of steroids and the accompanying induced adrenal insufficiency.

One NIH article explains- “The optimal time to test for HPA axis recovery following prolonged glucocorticoid use remains controversial due to variability of data for timelines of when that occurs. In general, the earliest that HPA axis recovery may be seen is about 4 weeks post-cessation of prolonged glucocorticoid use.”

Sounds as if you have just barely passed this timeline.

good luck to you.
