Stumbling and numb fingers/hands

December 26, 2011 at 2:06 pm

I’m currently on 40mg prednisone daily and still noticing increasing weakness and extreme numbness in fingers and hands. I’m walking but with weakness upo to thighs and notice the difference on a daily basis. Any suggestions on prednisone dose increase? Does it slow down the demyliation? Or should I try for plasma exchange? Anyone in the forum who might be well informed on this?

Naturally, this happens on a holiday – so dr.s hard to reach.:p
