How disappointed you must be to finally be off prednisone and flaring so bad again already.
Find a naturopathic doctor. You don't need your doctor's permission! He or she might be able to help you.
Otherwise, if you are feeling so bad so long, so often, you might be headed for surgery. That's not necessarily a bad thing, you'll learn here. You certainly don't want to have to take courses of prednisone two or three times a year, ugh. You have a long life ahead of you and I would not wish the long struggle with this on anyone.

Flaring, seasonal? or supplements too harsh? Back on prednisone, trying 15/20 mg. Appt 3/6 to discuss Humira, etc.
