Well, since the MTX "failed" you, then your Rheumy will not put you back on it. If the Humira is causing you pain, then he should take you off of that. None of the biologics worked for me. There are many other meds that you have probably not tired, that may work for you. You just have to keep trying each one. Or sometimes, 2 or 3 at the same time. Whatever works for you.
If he thinks it is the lack of Pred that is causing your pain, then he may have to put you back on it for a while. I was tapering low on my Pred (again) and in December, I ended up in the hospital, again. RA is my devil disease and Pred is an Angel and devil drug...but it is needed sometimes. It is for you and your Rheumy to decide what your next treatment will be. Let us know how it goes. Best to you!
he will not be putting you
