  • Hello, my sister also has myasthenia and was given prednisone 30 years ago. It helped but she always had extra weight after starting it. After a few years she had problems with controlling her emotions and anger. She also developed a deaths head grin that is not unusual. I'm so sorry to say her problems have not subsided over the years but grew. Please don't give up, doctors are still learning about this condition. We also share another problem with a family thread from my grandmother called, dercums. It is a horrible disease that turns body fat into multiple tumors all over. Just want you to know you are not alone in all this suffering. Good luck.
