Thanks John, Very sorry I miss quoted my Doc and she did not say " because it's time" that was all my Thought. All of my test continue to be in the normal range (CRP and sed rate among others). The results of my recent MRI was not good. My pain is mainly in one arm ususally after i slept on it. I continue to work with a PT to increase my flexibility. I have slowly tapered over the last 20 months as directed by my rheumatologist and now on 1mg every other day and will go off Prednisone soon. I had a relaspe last year and had to go back to 5mg and I realize may have to go back on prednisone at some time in the future.
I very much appreciate all you do.
