I was called in today to see my rheumatologist - ESR 100. CRP 34. I said over 2 years I have deteriorated - he agreed. The issues I have with medication is the side effects he claims.
He said the raging inflammation in my body is causing my drastic weight loss as the body is using up all my resources! Has anyone else heard or experiencing this?
So he has upped Prednisone 🙁 30mg again for a month (not happy, but need to walk). It's going to taper back to 5mg until biologics kick in.
In addition heart and bone density checks in Summer - I had to ask for those!
