I've been on pred 13 months. Reducing well last 3 months, and have gotten to 8, feeling good, only slight neck stiffness on occasion.
I was excited for labs today, because I felt certain they would show inflammation in the normal range.
Instead, showed inflammation still high (CRP 12.4 and SED 33). So discouraged.
Rhumy and I messaged a couple of times today-and I was able to get an appt tomorrow due to a cancellation . One option is to add an antibiotic- she is thinking minocycline. Anyone else been on this or other antibiotics to try to reduce the inflammation?
Any thoughts on whether you would want to increase pred in this situation?
My SED was 0 at time of diagnosis-only went up in Oct. My CRP started at 17, got an initial drop to 6, but tests since then 11, 26, 11 and now 12.4. (Had UTI when at 26.)
