Subject: Really bad flare-up :-(
I have had this rotten disease for seven years now. I thought I was in some kind of remission.. but oh no.. just as the good weather begins it decides to create havoc again.
I called my Rheumy Nurse today as my ankles have been giving me serious jip. Esp my right ankle.
Anyway.. she said we need to supress this and recommended that I up my steroids to 30mg!! I am normally on 2.5mg.. I up to 5mg if I feel that I am having a bad day!
