In July, my asthma got really bad, then had pneumonia and pleurisy pains. Then a pulmonary embolism.  Then I had to be on 24/7 oxygen because I couldn't breathe without it. Also, I have joint pains BIG time. doctors put me on prednisone because of the asthma (and the joint pains).  I gained 50 pounds! I've been reading about adrenal cortex supplements?  and have also read about a treatment with low dose antibiotics - tetracycline - for the pains. Has anyone had anything similar?
