Susie -- I will def let the doc know about
the pred. I bought some lidocaine cream today and just now applied it. Hope it helps with the pain. After a couple hours of shopping today my knee is really hurting badly at the moment. Sitting here with my leg propped up with an cold rice bag on it. I thought I was supposed to use cold for inflammation
I'll go throw the rice bag in the microwave and apply some heat! It is swollen, but not like I would have an injury I don't think. So far I have only had x-rays. I had PT for my other knee a couple years ago and it worked wonders so am hoping that it will do the trick for this knee too,
Heather -- I was on 60 mg in Feb after 40 did nothing for my UC. 60 was the magic number and worked wonders. 2 days after being on that dose I could actually leave the house again. Pred does horrible things to me though. I was really desperate to try it for my knee!
I also bought some ginger root today. Someone else said that it helps them. I like ginger so am going to make some ginger tea
So annoying that I was finally feeling like I was in remission and now I have this knee issue. Looking forward to some nice boringly healthy days ahead once the knee is resolved!
