Discussions that mention prednisone

Arthritis board


Hi Luvthemountians,

The Doc put me on Prednisone temporarily until the other medication Hydroxychloroquine (Plaqunil) he prescribed kicks in. If that don't work, or if I have problems with the medication (was told it could cause blindness if not monitored properly), he suggested that I make an appointment ASAP with a local Rheumatologist and have her prescribe something a little stronger. I was able to get an appointment with a local Doctor today (usually there is a 4month waiting list to see this Doctor, but I guess the Mayo connection helped me get an appointment faster). I'm very courious as to what she has to say about this condition. Seronegative Arthritis is a group of Arthritis's that do not raise the RH factor in your blood.

Oh dear, I just looked at the clock, I have to go to the appointment now, but I will write later and explain Seronegative Arthritis. Sorry!
