Using oral prednisone for chronic pain
I have been diagnosed with both advanced osteoarthritis AND rheumatoid arthritis as well as other conditions that also affect my joints all over my body. My pain manager and I have tried so many drugs and procedures over the years including but not limited to opiods and radio frequency ablations he simply ran out of modalities to try but my rheumatologist will be starting me on a different 'biological' as the first one did nothing. In the meantime he put me on low-dose prednisone and that drug is doing miracles. it seems so much of my body pains are due to inflamations at at various joints/nerves, prednisone is now managing that inflamation, at least until i get on therumicade trial. my big concern is what harm that steroid may be doing to the rest of my organs.
