my adopted auntie had this many years ago. she was literally bed ridden because of it. her remedy ended up being pred and extra mtx. she was on quite a high dose of mtx for almost a year before she was able to taper. about 30 years later she is happy with her life, and shows no signs of having the high dosages. everyone is different ........ but maybe ask your rheumy about an extra strong dose of mtx and pred.
