I've heard what everyone else has said, that 6mp can take a few months to really see a difference so you have to be patient with it, that some people see a great improvement on it and others don't. The dreaded Prednisone should help things settle down in the meantime so she can feel a little better although it creates its own problems, it is a quick fix that works for pretty much everybody. I hope she can get back to more of what a young woman should feel like. It is a shame she needs all those tests when she is feeling so bad as it is. Why is she getting all those tests? When was her last colonoscopy if you don't mind me asking?
