Went to the GP today with all my latest complaints. Sed Rate was up by 23 points which is why I'm in a flare. Yippeee! Still doing the immuran & humira (injection tonight). I can't seem to taper down past the 10mg maintenance dose of the pred without getting D. Hisssss....have any of you guys been in a position of being steroid dependent for this "crappy" disease? Any other suggestions on my regime of meds? I do probiotics, yogurt, can't tolerate fiber supplements, little to no sugar, no caffeine, no trigger foods, low fiber/residue diet, lots of water, lots of organics & little processed foods! What am I missing here?! Must admit work stress level has been unbelievable the last two weeks, but I am normally an even keeled person and let things roll off my back pretty easily. I'm frustrated and can't wait for the humira to kick in. I'm trying NOT to increase the pred! I want off that stuff!
