How.long have you been on the biologics. In the past when I've had a flare up I have contacted rheumy nurse and got emergency appointment to get steroid injection to carry me through.

I have cataracts and intermittent glaucoma so they have restricted my steroids steroids were the only thing that worked

Prolonged stiffness is usually associated with the RD. I would contact the rheumatology department.
