So my x-rays showed bone erosion in my feet and hips. Basic blood work is ok (waiting on a few more). I am currently 4 days into a 15 day trial of prednisone.
The prednisone is helping, which I guess, is another piece of the puzzle toward inflammatory or auto immune, since I don’t have labs to back it up.
But now I’m getting worried. I’ve read that if you do have RA…..sero-neg or positive, they treat it the same? Is that true? So…..that means some pretty hefty meds.
Is there ANYthing else that causes bone erosion like an inflammatory arthritis? I want to treat something if I have it, but I worry….what if it could be something else and I’m taking something I don’t really need?
