I can't tolerate dmards so have been taken off everything. I was on 5mg prednisone but they want me off that as well in a bid to make my symptoms worse so I qualify for biologics (I know I won't because of my blood markers that are always normal)
I was told to come down 1mg per week and I was okay until this week when it went to 1mg. I feel terribly sick now as though I've got a stomach ulcer. I've also got lower tummy pain and having to go to the loo. I've also got pain all over my body.
I'm wondering if this is just steroid withdrawal or the actual disease flaring again because the steroids have been reduced. The steroids never did anything for the joint pain
