i see the rheumatologist about every three weeks for blood work
my past few results have been pretty good, all the numbers have been in a normal range aside from the dsDNA, which is only 5 points above the average range. The doctor seems very happy and has been wheening me off the prednisone, except i still feel that soar straining feeling after walking up stairs or bending over, the simplest tasks usually hurt. If my numbers are so "good" why do i always feel like they aren't? I go into the doctor thinking "my bloodwork is going to be terrible" based on how i feel, but when the results come back its rarely anything to be concerned about. i was diagnosed about a a year ago so I'm still pretty clueless about how this works. Is that straining feeling always going to be there even if my numbers are all normal? Do you still feel it even if you get it to go into remission?
