getting a flare up under control
by Stacey Key
I was diagnosed 7 years ago. The longest medicated clear stretch is about 8 months for me. I am 33, on imuran for the second time since sep last year, i am having flare up at the moment for which i am taking cortisone. It always seems that when i get down to 25 - 20mg per day - the symptoms become acute again - i have been through this with my docs so many times and i know with being careful, resting, eating right is comes right eventually. My question is - does anyone have any suggestions on how to keep it under control for the last few weeks on the cortisone? No suggestions will be too small! Im really interested to know how other manage this part of a flare up. Its been 2 months since the symptoms returned and Im really wanting to get it under control and keep it that way.
