I got my first steroid shot this past Monday and started on the Prednisone on Tuesday...WOW!!! Now I know what all of you are talking about. This is the first time my flare has been so bad that my rheumy has offered me steroids to help. After 1.5 years of suffering with RA, I actually feel almost normal again. I know it isn't something I can stay on (I have severe Osteoporosis), but it sure would be nice. He has me on 10mg a day for 7 days, then 5 mg a day for another 7 days. I guess I will just enjoy the relief while I have it.
