Well I have been to my new Rhuemetologist and it was as expected. He gave me a really fast every two weeks go down 2.5 mg. Well I am not doing the full 2.5 and going a tad slower.
Here are two things POSITIVE about appt. He gave me a standing lab order for crp once a week if I feel the need. BUT I am having a flare up of plantar fasciitis so it will not be very accurate. ALSO he told me to eat an apple a day to see if I have jaw pain starting.
Funny but it settles my nerves with this apple 🍎 thing because my jaw is fine thus far.
I have gone from 20 mgs and now am at 13.75mgs. I get that by breaking my 2.5 in half. So went down to 17.5 mgs then 16 plus then 15 now at 13.75 mgs.
So far 😊 so good. This will be my third attempt to get to 10 which is about where I crash and burn. I do fine from 20 on down once I get the flair to settle.
So, I have no clue as to how much inflammation I will show with plantar fasciitis......which also seems to be helped by prednisone.....
Was laughing with a friend because laughter is good and we were discussing how much pain is the prednisone covering. Because once I am off this miracle yet devastating drug will I find all the pains it covered. Ok you have to laugh at that image because frankly I look horrid when I 😭.
