I went to my doctor an he said that really nothing he can do cause it's out his field but he said for me to keep taking the Prednisone until I go see Rheumatologist in July..but I'm not going to take them cause if I got to feel like I did last night I thought I was dying I was in so much pain an the pills had me hurting..o don't know what to take..thank you

Ugh. I really don't know of any steroid "alternative". I wish I could help! Maybe someone on here has some ideas.
