My rheumotologist just called. He said that he is not seeing anything conclusive in my blood work but would like to do two things:
1) start me on a low dose of prednisone to see if I see any improvement, and
2) get more blood work done, looking for some things he hasn't tried yet.
On one hand I sincerely hope the prednisone will work because I sure could use some relief, but on the other hand, I don't want to have to take prednisone because of what it could implicate. (am I right to assume that if it is Lupus I will probably feel better but if it is fibro, I will feel worse?)
