The prednisone that I’ve taking for 3 years has done a number on my bone density. Last May, 3 of my vertebrae shattered. I’m on Fosimax now, but the shattered vertebrae did a number on my recovery and I’m still living with the after effects.

I can’t lie flat in bed, so I sleep in a lounge chair, I haven’t recovered my strength and the vertebrae still seem to cause back spasms at times.

So to everyone out there, keep this in mind.
