Hi All,

I've been flaring this week as a result of trying to wean off prednisone. I'm used to joint pain but starting yesterday a more stabbing type of pain started in my hands/legs/feet, along with tingling/numbness, and a heat/burning sensation in my leg. I am thinking this is nerve pain rather than my normal joint pain.

Anyone else get this? I've had it before but it's been well controlled with my meds. Should Ali ask for a referral to a neurologist?

It wouldn't hurt to get checked by him. I get a lot of stabbing pains due to my fibromyalgia and have to take gabapentin.
