    Default Good News :-)

    Hi all,

    Haven't been on in a while, things have been busy busy busy. Hope everyone is going well!
    Had a visit with my rheumy yesterday and got some good news from all my tests. The disease activity has decreased significantly, I cant remember the name of the test, but in March it measured at something ridiculous like 1300 and yesterday (from tests done in late may) it had decreased to 270.
    My rheumy was concerned last time that my kidneys might be getting attacked but tests confirmed that they arent, all kidney functions are within normal ranges as is everything else!!
    Though in saying all of this, I am still on Prednisolone but cutting down gradually.
    He was surprised that I hadn't been suffering in the cold weather and that the cold weather i experienced in Europe didn't effect my symptoms at all.
    Anyway always good to get good news and to share with people that understand what this news means

    I may have been dealt a bad hand, but at least I'm still playing with a full deck. ( most of the time anyway).
