I have received the following report. I am a 29 year old male. My doctor (primary care
physician) says that I have arthritis
and that it cannot be cured. She further recommends 60 pills of 375mg prednisone
(which I really don't want to take after reading the associated side effects) I wanted to hear an expert opinion from you. Where should I go from now?
