Pen - how's it going?

Just wondering how you are doing off the prednisone and taking the humira every week?

Unfortunately I flared back up and wasn't able to get off the prednisone, am back on 15. Hopefully you are doing better than me!

Pen - Glad you are off the prednisone and know you are too! I wish I could get off, it wreaks havoc with my blood sugars. Hope the weekly Humira will start working for you, so you can get off the antibiotics, too. I envy those who have remissions, too, maybe someday it will happen for us! My flares haven't been awful, though, so I've been lucky. Seems like every time I get down to 5 mg on the pred, I start in with diarrhea and pain again. I would rate it about a 4-5 but know it would get worse if I didn't go back up on the pred. Guess I'll try to taper a little more slowly this time and maybe my combination of Humira and Imuran will kick in in the meantime. I've been on the combination about a month now. Guess it's just a waiting game now - try it for a few months and see what happens. If it doesn't work, then I'm not sure where I go next. Hope your bloating and gassy pains are getting better.
