I accept that the Prednisalone I take is only dealing with the inflammation from the underlying Auto- immune disease and as PMRpro reminds us the disease is chugging away in the background.Then as soon as things are stable we start gradually reducing the steroid dose, until we reach a stage where any symptoms are manageable or are absent.
Does the inflammation stay controlled for a lucky few?
Or has something happened to the disease process while the pain and inflammation is controlled?
What stops the disease jumping up and biting you once you are on a low or nil dose of Pred. ?
Is it a bit of a lottery, are we hoping that the disease has gone into remission?
Just pondering as I micro- reduce.😳
