Sorry you have a new diagnosis! It does seems they've told you some contradictory things, it's no wonder you feel lost!
1) You have an inflammatory disease. (Ok, could be Lupus, but Fibro is not considered inflammatory.)
2) You respond well to prednisone. (Ok, that means it's inflammatory, could be Lupus, but Fibro doesn't generally respond to prednisone.)
So are they giving up on diagnosing an auto-immune (inflammatory) disease?? Do you have other symptoms of the 11 diagnostic symptoms for lupus? Just saying "fibro" and showing you the door?
Now I'm not expert on Fibro, but I thought it was treated by a rheumy. Maybe it's just your particular rheumy who doesn't treat it? Did you ask them who would treat it? Also, HW has a fibro forum, you might ask questions over there.
Sorry, I seem to have more questions than answers.
