I was careless with my diet, after almost TWO years of living pain-free and have been suffering a sever episode of AS for three days.
I started taking Cortancyl (prednisone) 60 mg yesterday. I can't remember what happened last time when my doctor prescribed it, how long it took for the inflammation (pain, stiffness and burning sensation in the sacroiliac joints, spine, hips...) to go away. Does anyone have even a remote idea?
Here's what triggered this episode: CHICORY. I started drinking it almost every day (I know, stupid) about two weeks ago.
Apparently the inulin in it doesn't feed only the good bacteria, but the ones that can trigger the inflammation as well.
I started taking prednisone early this time. The last time the doctors didn't know what it was and it took them weeks to prescribe it. So I'm kind of hoping that it may work faster since the inflammation hasn't really worsened yet (I'm still cramp free!).
