I have recently been diagnosed with having rheumatoid arthritis by a rheumatologist and I am to taper off until medication called Methotrexate kicks in which will take up to 6-8 weeks. Started taking prednisone only 3 days ago to help with inflammation of hands wrists, fingers, feet, legs etc. Have been waking up with pain in my hands and fingers for past 2 nights. Take 5 mg of prednisone at 7am and symptoms of pain appear within less than 8 hours. Started ttttaking methatrexate 2 days ago. Will the ppain be persistant until methotrexate kicks in.
