In 2004 my doctor diagnosed lupus and arthritis. My treatment is hydroxychloroquin and predinsone. They say the predinsone has lots side effects and should be taken for a short time. My problem is that my fingers and other joints still swell when i dont take it and its really painfull and working is hard so am forced to keep taking it. Am now on 10mg daily. Been on it from 2004. what will I do now? Please help. Tell me any other way to reduce pain and inflamation coz my life is just so different now i cant do what i want or even what am required to coz of the pain n fatigue.
