Hips and knees are pretty bad today. It's unbearably cold outside, so that may have something to do with it. I start my prednisone taper tomorrow. I'm a little worried that things will get bad again. My sed rate wasn't bad (25), so I'm not sure why I'm getting such a good response from the steroids. It seems like the damn Celebrex should be able to keep a handle on it. The knees are pretty angry, but it's a whole lot easier to handle the pain when your whole body isn't on fire.
