Just to follow up from yesterday's postings. My GP finally managed to speak to rheumy yesterday. She says I must come off pred prior to scan ten days away now. Can take cocodamol and ibuprofen but no steroids. MRI now seems to be necessary before anyone can go back on biologics. I'm trying to find out whether this is a new regulation in Scotland and will let you all know.
This isn't good news for me or anyone else who is in a similar position. I don't like moving goalposts.
