I started having an "episode" of AS 14 days ago. I've been on prednisone for 10 days.
I've had several blood tests and Monocytes and C-reactive protein were normal during the worst of it (on and off prednisone). The yesterday's test has however shown that Monocytes have quadrupled way above normal (1800+) and C-reactive protein went from <0.3 to over 5.
I'm still taking prednisone. Isn't it supposed to lower the inflammation?
My SI pain is nowhere near as bad, I walk almost normally and can sit for a while. But, I started "feeling" my knees and even here and there a couple of fingers. But it goes away.
I'l seeing my rheumathologist this week, but I'm wondering if there's something I've been doing wrong.
I'l off starches. I have no idea what to do.
