I am wondering about achieving remission. I do not think that I have ever actually been in remission. My new rhumatologist/vasculitis specialist, who I have only seen for the past month, believes I have ANCA negative egpa. Getting a diagnosis has been very difficult and I have seen many doctors along the way but it has, and still is, very confusing. I read about patients having infusions to achieve remission. My understanding is that six to twelve sessions are standard and then with good luck disease activity may disappear for years. Am I understanding that correctly? I don't know when my egpa started ....years of breathing , sinus, and ear problems and then brain damage with eosinophils of 17,000 in 2016. High dose oral steroids....misdiagnoses....etc etc....until today. Currently I am on 30 mg prednizone ...hopefully only for five days and then back down to 10 if I can stop the rattle in my chest...and methotrexate one a week which I started a month ago. I want to trust the new doctor but I don't think I feel myself getting better. Thoughts?
