Hope you are all doing well. My rheumatologist is impatient that I stop prednisone, I’m currently at 3mg. She says more than two years without being able to stop is not a landmark of PMR. She insists it’s seronegative RA, but I have no hand or feet involvement. “All her patients are able to eliminate Pred at two years max.”
Last visit she mentioned spondyloarthritis as the label of my disease.
I’m increasingly uncomfortable with this doctor, since she wants me to start on Biologics but I’m worried of the infection risks. I have to care for my mom in a hospital environment very soon and honestly, I’m afraid of COVID, among others things. She doesn’t seem to understand my point and has become a little hostile, if you will.... I’m definitely changing doctors.
Please, your feedback will be greatly appreciated.
