Discussions that mention prednisone

Arthritis board


My pain sounds the same and it also came out of nowhere. My Dr. said it could be lupus or fibro...RA did not show up in blood test. He said it was definitely not RA. I kept complaining until he said there was nothing else he could do for me. He FINALLY referred me to a Rheumatologis. He immediately did an MRI. It is definitely RA. He put me on prednisone. I was pain free that night. Only 30% of RA is diagnosed with a blood test.
Keep complaining!
