    I mentioned to my one urogyne last year that maybe I should be put on steroids thinking this is all autoimmune. He did not go for that idea saying that steroids can cause alot of serious health issues. I at least thought he should have given me a short trial of them just to see if they would help.
    Did you get any relief from your IC while on the steroids?

    I'm finishing up a second round of prednisone for what seems to be Lupus symptoms. It helps my IC, and generally helps my all over body pain. The first round really did seem to help more than this second one, and I'm seeing more side effects now that I've been on it longer.

    Does it Help the IC?

    Does it help the IC to be on 2.5 or 5 mg of prednisone?

    I've been taking prednisone for about 18 years for lupus. Most of the time I'm on a minimal dosage (2.5 mg) but have occasionally needed to crank up the dosage briefly (and then immediately start to taper down) when my lupus would flare.

    I've just been told to try 5 mg of Cortef (hydrocortisone) for another medical condition that they suspect could be autoimmune. That is a very low dose.

    Is anyone on this forum taking steroids for another condition they have?

    Does its help the IC?
