After being in remission for almost two years, some flare up has started. I had my quarterly checkup last week and my urine protein creatinine ratio has increased beyond the normal range. And I'm starting to feel joint pain at the wrist, abdomen, arms, neck, shoulder, chest and ankles. Time to push the panic button? My doc prescribed a higher dosage of prednisone as a first step to control it. I went from 1 tablet to 4. And he asked to see me in one month's time instead of in three months. He said if there's fever, to see him immediately.
I'm analyzing all my activities since my previous checkup, and will have to cut my source of stress from work and physical activities.
