Ok, so I just got my blood test results from my doctor. I have been on steroids for appor.x 3 months now (from 10 mg to now 8mg) and plaquinel. All my blood tests are back to normal- ESR, C4 is back up, and metabolic panel is fine EXCEPT CRP which was actually normal when everything else was abnormal. Now my fatigue is a lot better on meds (no more feeling like I've been shot up with a narcotic) but my pain is coming back more with each drop in prednisone prompting a new drug- Naproxen 500mg for pain as needed (I try not to use it) and my rashes flare on and off. So my question is- what do you usually experience with test results while on steroids? Does it mean I'm relatively controlled on the steroids now? I know the CRP can mean a possible infection, although I'm not sick that I'm aware of. Any help at all would be appreciated!
