    i hope i am doing this right i do not know where some of my replys end up. I usually end up spelling things wrong. I went to the rheumatologist in may had 16 tubes of blood drawn and he called me i had to have more drawn and the he called me again on friday afyernoon when i had the blood drawn in the morning. He told me to get off my imuran immediatly because my white count is 3.0 and my rbc is low so i go on tuesday for more again. Take care and keep safe. Bonita

    Try to cut down and do a low sodium low or no sugar diet. I drink water all day after I have a home made all natural smoothie my grandmother makes for me. I drink any where from 3 liters to a gallon especially during the week at work. I also eat baked/broiled fish, broiled or baked chicken or turkey with green leafy salad and/or veggies. Boring I know but it helps keeping the weight off while on prednisone I think anyway. I don't know how else to explain the weight loss other than this cause I sure couldn't work out the past 5 months. I couldn't walk a city block.

Just Checkin In...

Went to San Francisco last weekend! Had a blast! No pains either... woohoo!

I've been doing really well. Labs are still normal, and I'm now down to 10mg of prednisone! I couldn't be happier about that. And my rheumatologist said I can lower by 1mg every 2 weeks until I am prednisone-no-more (so long as I don't have any problems, but I am VERY optimistic about this!)

I'm expecting a slight flare in a day or so, as I always get when I lower prednisone, as my

I feel so achey today :(

by tasha on 05-17-2009 at 01:12 PM
A few days ago my rheumatologist said I could lower my prednisone to 12.5mg! Yay! But today, about 3 days later, I feel very achey. My feet, knees, hands, wrists, elbows, shoulders, pretty much EVERYWHERE hurts! I went to the gym this morning thinking it might help but it just made me feel worse. This sucks because I have a lot planned for today. I'm going out to lunch with my dad and then we're going shopping for a new BBQ, which I've wanted for a VERY long time. Then I was going

It just keeps getting better!!!

by tasha on 05-13-2009 at 10:38 AM
A lot has happened since I last posted in here... and it's all good! The day after my last appointment with my rheumatologist, I went to see another rheumatologist up at UCLA. He pretty much reassured me that my rheumatologist was doing the right thing in terms of my treatment, and he was extremely impressed with my progress as he was looking at my lab results over the course of the last several months. I was also able to participate in a few studies they were conducting at UCLA. They didn't

Feeling MUCH Better Now!

by tasha on 04-28-2009 at 03:29 PM
I just had an appointment with my rheumatologist and I feel SO much better about everything now. I got some things answered, and I feel pretty good about my condition again.

The reason she increased my CellCept to 2,500 was because the blood levels in my urine have remained unchanged even though my protein levels have gone down drastically. She thinks I need the extra dosage to get the blood levels down. I'm okay with that. I was just afraid it was worse!

I also
