I was dx'd with Lupus in 1990, Fibro and RA in 1994. I had symptoms of lupus for 13 years before the dx.
If I take high doses of prednisone the fibro flares bad. The lower doses aren't too bad. If you have both lupus and fibro you will have to find your balance with the pred. If I take over 30mgs of pred, I will start having deep muscle burning pain. If I don't take pred or stay on a very low dose I have joint pain,swelling and severe fatigue all the time.
Good luck with this and please keep us updated. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.
