Would welcome any feedback on which type of maintenance drugs I can ask my Dr or consultant about. Azathriprine is ruled out as is methatrexate(sorry about spelling). I took myself off prednisolone, 4mg, at beginning of march when I was told to come off azathriprine due to high bilirubin levels. Now after nearly 2 months I have constant stiffness and joint pain and my feet are really painful when walking and even resting. My gel insoles from hospital aint helping, which is why I think I either need to go back on steroids or recommend a different maintenance drug. Pain killers aren't much help either. Any recommendations would be really helpful.
