Discussions that mention prednisone

Arthritis board


Hi! I have ankylosing spondylitis and am currently on Remicade, low dose prednisone, Ultram. I mostly get pain in lower back, sacroiliac joint and knees. But, I know that AS can affect the ribcage joints as well. I have heard that a stiffness in the chest area can be a symptom of AS. Of all the medicines, Remicade has helped with flexibility the most. I still have pain, but it has helped me more than Enbrel or Humira. Take care, Kera4
