First of all, welcome to WHL.
As for the flare you are in, hopefully the Prednisone will help, it is the only thing that helps me, when I am in a bad flare.
I have alot of your symptoms, my major problem is joint pain, muscle pain, tissue pain, shortness of breath, fatigue and many others. I have these pains every day, but when I am in a flare, it is even worse. The daily pain level is at 5-6 and in a flare I am an 8 or more.
The only thing I don't have, is depression and I am very thankful for that. Maybe it's because I have a very supportive, helpful, loving husband and family.
If you have any questions, just ask, we all try our best to answer all of them, if we can.
I may have been dealt a bad hand, but at least I'm still playing with a full deck. ( most of the time anyway).
