I have Lupus (SLE)... as a result I have to take often high doses of prednisone. While I have to take it, it definately increases my appetite. During these times I feel like I have a constant state of munchies. Also due to the illness, I have almost crippling fatigue at times. I keep telling myself.. oh just go out and exercise or walk or something, but I do it once and I am laid up for a couple of days due to how tired it makes me. Doctors have told me that I must lose weight, but they forget to say how exactly. One doctor even told me that I may as well get surgery. I doubt I am even a candidate for this. I would appreciate some advice from anyone who is going through something similar thanks.
