I have cerebral spinal Vasculitis, treated with IVIG, cellcept, prednisone and plaque nil, and have developed pleurisy
. My oral prednisone dose is at 25 Mg and still in pain. Will talk to my rheumatologist tomorrow, but am looking for information. Nora Grossman
JA: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?
Customer: Pain for two weeks with the only relief being an increase in steroids. It hurts when I breathe or move wrong.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: I am a challenge, so it is important for me to succinctly cover issues. My files are complete, since all of the other things have been going on since January, including a TIA. My question is if IV high dose steroids given for a week might be more effective than oral dosages? The issues are diabetes control, depression and sleep.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Doctor about your situation and then connect you two.
