Hey everyone, I’m new here, not sure where else to turn at this point as Google is not helping me this time! I’ve just started Prednisolone, a short course for 6 days at 50mg a day. I’m on day 3 and my hands (my main symptom) don’t seem to be getting that much better but it’s also hard to tell.
Bit of background, I’m 21 years old and have had psoriasis on and off since I was a kid. Been having lots of hand pain on and off since I was 18 with no cause, and in the last 8ish months my hand pain has been constant with weight-bearing activities (holding things, typing, driving, etc.) and in the last 2 months or so they hurt randomly while resting too. I found a good doctor who thought I had MS at first (have lots of other symptoms too) but that was ruled out through MRI. My inflammation markers are down in my blood tests but he thought Prednisolone would help. I feel like I should be feeling 100% on this med if I did really have PSA? Has anyone got any advice for me? Thanks heaps in advance.
