((Hugs)) You should call your doctor since you aren't getting any relief from the meds your taking. It sounds like with the lesions that the lupus is flaring, but your doctor needs to know about this so he/she can give you something for relief. My hands have curled like that before and it is painful. When this happens to me I have to take some pred or increase the amount I'm taking. I hope you get some relief soon. Please keep us updated and take care. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
You need to ask your doctor about the pred and what dose to start yourself on. Does he have an after hours number to call? If he tells you to take it, it should start helping in a few hours. Let us know what the doc says and how you do. Take care.

Welcome to the forum! It sounds like you have been through alot but, looks like things maybe turning in your favor a bit with the warmer weather coming in. I hope you will be able to continue to taper your pred and possibly come off it in the near future.
