Hi Everyone, My Rheummy wanted me to try Prednisone on my next flare "for diagnostic purposes". I haven't had a definite Lupus diagnosis yet. Well, I went on it and it was like flipping a light switch. This week I was going down, down ,down and I finally hit the wall this morning and gave up and took the dreaded stuff. Well, this afternoon,I feel like a million bucks....So, my question to y'all experienced folks...Does this hone in on my diagnosis? I don't see my Rheummy again till Jan. He said if the Prednisone worked to start Plaquenil. I'd love any info. you could send my way. Thanks, Junebug
