While visiting with my perinatologist the other day, she asked me when my last flare had been. I honestly couldn't really answer her. I remember going into a big flare before I was put on Methotrexate 2 years ago, but the metho took care of most of my problems. I have been off of metho for 2 months now and I have pain almost everyday. I have some swelling that occurs in random areas and some inflammation of several tendons throughout my body. So, what really qualifies as a flare? I'm sort of confused. I explained this my peri dr. so she would know just what I've been going through, but I really need to know for myself when I'm considered in a flare.
P.S. We can start to try and have babies in about 6 weeks from now as long as my body stays in control with low dose prednison! Very exciting!
