I got a call from Stephanie, Dr. Wolf’s medical assistant, today. I had some blood work done last week, and the results just came in. My markers for inflammation (c-reactive protein and sed rate, I think) came back high, which to me is nothing shocking. I can tell I am still in a pretty nasty flare. ‘
Stephanie has assured me that adding prednisone to my already impressive list of medications will help alleviate the flare. I don’t know, I haven’t been on the evil prednisone for almost fifteen years, maybe longer. And the last time I was on it, it was at a high dose, like sixty mg. Yeah, I had many many mood swings during that time. It was insane.
Now, I’m going to be taking a lower dose at twenty mg a day. This is supposed to help everything heal over, and hopefully stop all the bathroom trips and crazy urgency. Down with the cramps, too!!
