Oh, The Mrs, that's awful! Now that you mention it I do remember you saying that you've been on pred for a long time. I had a few problems tapering my Entocort too but I seem to have finally gotten off of it. I hear so many horror stories on the forum of failed pred tapers or awful symptoms upon tapering, I guess I should be happy I wasn't on it for very long. I hope you're somehow able to get this flare under control AND get off the pred! Easier said than done I'm sure.
