I'm back on steroids for few weeks, I'm so disappointed. I have been having a symptom here and there and I thought they will go away but in the past few weeks their number increased and their intensity, so I went to see the rheumatologist yesterday hoping that he will just either tell me to pull my socks up and stop moaning or just give me a shot of steroids and send me on my merry way. No such luck, he said I should have gone to see him earlier and take a high dose short course of steroids when the symptoms to appear, now it is more advanced, we need a longer course. It is frustrating because I never know whether I'm making a mountain out of a molehill with any one symptom or it is a genuine indication of an incipient flare, so I'm liable to either go too early to a doctor or too late, in that case.
And I've just managed to lose 7 kilos, I will put them back again now, how annoying.
