Say I wake up with a swollen, red eye that has a phantom jabbing an ice pick in it... I start my prednisone at 20mg breakfast, lunch & dinner, about 2 hours after I take my first dose, my head is silent and the redness, swelling, facial distortion is gone. BUT as soon as I taper to the 10mg 3 times a day it simply comes back on the opposite side, minus the redness, swelling & facial distortion. That will subside and I will be left with a dull to intense headache (no ice pick) for 4-6 weeks. I also have awoke with both sides red, etc and the ice pick going in interval on both sides. I know this sounds paranoid, but it sometimes feels as though it's alive and just playing with me.
