I am having a small falre, my hands are swollen and my facial rash is showing again. Otherwise I feel okay. I am just wondering if I should increase my prednisone again while I wait to see the new rheumy or stay at my current dose. My prednisone dose was left at my discretion by my old rheumy with orders to take as little as I could while still doing well. Any advice or ideas?

Can you take it easy for a couple of days and see if it continues, then only take a little more pred if it does continue? That's generally what I do, and I find sometimes proper food & sleep work better than pred!
