Is anyone on here taking short courses of Prednisolone to alleviate joint pain? It's Winter here and I really notice the difference in my joints and hand. Can't take NSAID's as they may cause bleeding and don't want to up my stronger pain meds if I can avoid it. I was given Prednisolone (10mg ) to take for 3 days but I haven't actually taken any just yet. I don't want to introduce something new just yet if I can avoid it.
Latest bloods are back and CRP is up and Cardiolipin and Beta2 are both high @ >160 (ref range here for normal is <20) also platelets are high but ANA is down to 1:640.
I think I'm still positive for Hughes!!!
I don't want to hibernate but just feeling a bit fatigued and achy, which is probably because the inflammation markers are high.
Maybe I just needed a whinge
