My mom is being weaned off prednisone, and her blood pressure keeps spiking at very high levels, and her blood sugar keeps bottoming out. She has to wake up every two hours to check both! Her internist says her rheumatologist must take care of this; her rheumatologist says the internist must help her. She has been to the ER 3 times in the past few weeks and they just give her more blood pressure medicine and send her home. No one will try to see what is going on.
Has anyone had this problem before? My family is desperate! Is there anything that can be done?
