Im confused too
Maybe your Rheumy is getting everything else checked out before diagnosing you? Not quite sure.
That was clever to take pictures of your rash to show your Dr. Most times when you visit your Dr. these things 'behave' themselves and are nowhere to be seen
I understand how you feel when you say people dont understand because you look ok. I often feel like death but to everyone else look ok and other times I feel ok and look like death cant win really.
Hopefully the meds she gave you do the trick till you see her next. Are you still tapering the pred?
Im not much help, but do sympathise with you.
Keep posting and letting us know how you are feeling.
Its a shame she couldnt have kept you on the pred, till she has made a diagnosis, seeing as though it gave you some relief. Its an evil med but it does help.
Im glad you had a better day, you can never pick when they will happen, hopefully you get many more like that
Have fun at you friends dinner
Talk soon, take care
