Started Pred 30 mgs 2 weeks ago - felt fantastic after a couple of days and have done up to Friday night! Now pain, swelling and inflammation left hand excruciating - again. Pain in skull neck and shoulder. Co-codamol doesn't seem to help and have just taken 2nd dose of Arcoxia. Do I grin and bear it, go to GP, up Pred? Not had scans and blood work by rhuemy yet so have not started DMARDs. Any advice would be appreciated. Babs
