Thanks for the tip Imac Girl....
I'm going to my doctor tomorrow.. My GP not my GI, and I'm going to run this all by her and see what she says. I'll mention the Omega 3 and see if she feels that would help.. I was thinking of trying glucosamine too, anything to help with this joint pain..
Kevman.. I was on Prednisone for almost 8 months, and my average dose was 50mg.. I wasn't able to start tapering until I had my remicade infusion which put me in remission overnight.. but unfortunately I developed neurological side effects from it and can't get anymore infusions of either Remicade OR Humira.. bummer! But, that one infusion has kept me in remission so far, as far as my U/C goes and I had it back on October 22nd... Hopefully you won't have to be on Prednisone very long and can avoid some of the horrific joint pain that I'm experiencing...
Christine, I also had plantar facsitis too, but it was back when I was a bartender and on my feet all day. It has gone away but for me the pain was more in the arch of my foot and I had developed a little cyst where the main pain was.. I remember the foot doctor giving me a shot of cortisone in the arch of my foot and I almost jumped through the ceiling!!! Foot shots are VERRRRY painful! LOL..
Well, let's hope after THIS little setback, I can finally get some of my normal life back :)
