Hi Jenny, I'm sorry you are having this flare and I have to agree with Hippi, see if the rheumy will let you take a little extra predisone. It does seem to help a bit. My fingers havn't swelled alot but I can tell you that my feet and calves have swollen so badly when I flared that they actually bled. So it would not surprise me at all that you would have to take off your rings. I hope you get passed this flare quickly and get the swelling down.
