Hi I have been suffering with multiple joint pain now for 8 months GP suspected RA due to morning stiffness joint swelling etc but bloods came back ok except for high platelets got referred to rheumatologist who I saw 3 weeks ago. They put me on prednisone reducing dose for 2 weeks to see if it helped and more bloods done. The pred has been great morning stiffness reduced swelling reduced fatigue gone but when I reduce it all symptoms come back so GP has told me to stay on it for now. also bloods came back normal again apart from platelets has gone up again. I'm so confused as to what's going on frightened they will take me off pred and the pain will all come back anyone else had this.
