Ok received my new lab results. My C-reactive protein is up from .87 to 1.13 which to me is not that high as normal is <.80.
My abc is down to 13.7.my absolute neutrophils is 11549 range is 1500-7800.
sed rate is 25 normal
All other labs are normal.
So why when I have gone back up to 20mg do I still have a slight head ache and occasional jaw and shoulder pain. Remember I went blazing down to 7 mg from 8 then 9 then 10, 12.5 ,15, 17.5, 20 ..
I have been invited to go on a trip and it will only cost me food and air for 7 days in Puerto Vallarta.
I am so worried that I will end up being a pain for my friend who is taking me. I never know what day I will feel ok or not and 7 days in a row with a high energy friend is sort of undoing me. She did get us a 2 bedroom condo so I will have my own space and bath which is a real treat.
What about being in the sun all day? Does Prednisone have sun sensitivity?
I am going to stay on 20 mgs until the pains go away. Then I will do the slow to almost stop when I go to 17.5. etc.
My rheumy I think is not going to answer my calls due to my refusing to take the methotrexate. It was poisoning me and I felt it.
