I recently reduced to 22.5 whilst on holiday in sunny climes.
Nine days later upon my return I flared. I have felt really rough with a return to the temporal pain, fatigue and sore painful scalp. Also been feeling quite low. 25 didn't help and ended up going to 30. Blood test showed CRP 2.3 at this point. Pain continued and yesterday I took myself to 32.5. I woke this morning with the pain subsiding. A few questions. Was the CRP low because of the increases? Even though I have continued to have pain? I know I am not going mad. I am having a flare. At the beginning of this illness I had very high CRP and ESR. There's nothing like a return of symptoms to serve as a reminder that this is a really serious illness. I will never say I enjoy the well documented side effects. Who would. They aren't as bad as the scary return of symptoms. I will settle on the higher dose until I have heard from the rheumatologist and he has digested everything that has gone on. I will eventually get my life back as we all will. Take care xx
