Unfortunately I have not experienced the type of problems with your teeth that you are having with prednisone. To be honest with you I am one of those weird ones out there that has been on prednisone for 19 years and truely have had minor issues with it. Even my bone density tests have been good over the last few years!
But many people experience many complications from prednisone. I am sorry to hear this is happening to you! I would make the appointment for the 15th for your tooth and then just keep calling them and seeing if they have any cancellations each week! I know that can not be comfortable! And if you can't get relief then you can always go to the ER to see if they can give you some relief. You can even see if your rheum or GP can try and call and get you in sooner. Sometimes the MD's office have a better chance at getting you in!
Also sorry to hear about your heel spurs! I know that is uncomfortable. There is nothing like not being able to take a walk. I've been dealing with leg swelling down to my toes from my kidneys and now I have a few blood clots in my left leg and it's been so frustrating not being able to get out there!
I hope you start to feel better soon and keep us posted on how you are doing!
