Re: Treating a flare up
I am new to RA world as an adult. But I want to share with you what my wonderful Rheumotologist told me.
First of all, I will always be on some type medication due to severity of my condition.
Right now I just started Meth. and go progressively higher every week. Than Prednisone from very high dose to a lower and than I will stay on that low levels for a while. But she said that I have to have always in my draw Prednisone and if I get worse day or flare up - I must start this treatment again.
As I understood I can't do any treatments on my own; I always have to be in contact with her and if I get flare up she has to know about it and we go back to Prednisone for higher doses and than lower it down as things get better.
How come that your condition worsened and you are on your own? Did you contact your DR? You are only 28, you don't want your joints, ligaments, etc. get worse from inflammation?
I am not sure if you can take Alive and expect any help in a long run from it. This is a temp solution, you need more than that.
Best of luck to you, honey
