I was diagnosed in 1987 with sarcord. Presently it is in remission. Predisone is the only thing I know that will give you energy and allow you do somethings. BUT it will make you fat and you will not like your looks. I have been on it for up to 1 year at a time. I have very bad dreams and I refuse to go back on it. My face will always break out in a rash or all over my arms. The sarcord is now on my skins on my left arm. It can come in other parts of the body and my arm is disfigured. I hope you feel better. No herbs - I don't believe in them.
