Thank you for your response. I do know that Prednisone is too dangersous to take routinely or at high dosages for very long. I was in a level 9 flare last weekend, and I needed it. It brought me back. I really would not want to live if I had to endure the pain I had a week ago. I am thankful for the prednisone, but I hope to not need it as desperately as I did last weekend ever again. I am working w/my doctor to keep the inflammation down so that it does not get out of control. Fingers crossed. :)
