Arthritis board

Thanks to everyone for your input. I just got back from my appt. with the rheumatologist and he feels it is rheumatoid arthritis because of my symptoms. He said I had significant swelling in my joints and took more blood tests to see if there is any change since my primary care dr. took the last ones. I am now on a 6 day course of prednisone; apparently I take 6 pills the first day, 5 the second, 4 the third etc. until they are finished on day 6. He also gave me a prescription for Mobic 7.5mg. which is some kind of anti-inflammatory. Keep your fingers crossed that this at least alleviates some of the pain; I tell ya I don't think I could go on indefinately like this.
Thanks guys!
