Had a rather, to me, unsatisfactory regular check in with doctor this morning. There were a number of things I felt she didn't really address as fully as I'd have liked her to (take ibuprofen as an anti-inflammatory for the shoulder that's been giving me random wrenching pain for several months. for example). But the clincher. Me: shall I come back in three months as usual? She: No, as your prednisone dose is so low, why don't you just use up what you have and stop, and see what happens. Come back if you feel you need more. On the plus side, for the first time she noticed I wear a step counter and congratulated me on the exercise I do.
