Hello and welcome to our family
You've suffered for quite a long time and I am glad that you have finally been diagnosed. Isn't it weird that we are happy to be told that we have a disease, just so that we know that we are not crazy!!
You are in good company here and we are here to help you as much as (and in any way that) we can.
If you are prescribed Methotrexate, you will probably be able to reduce your dosage of Prednisone. Please read through the posts here so that you can learn about the medications and what they are prescribed for and possible side effects, etc.
I wish you the very best
Peace and Blessings
Look For The Good and Praise It!
