Hello.The first is to go to a rheumatologist.He must examine you and request additional tests to know what type of arthritis you have.¿Have you been visited by a rheumatologist?¿Has he requested rheumatic tests?(rheumatic factors, autoantibodies ....).
Prednisone and Diclofenac are widely used in the treatment of Arthritis.
Please consult your local doctor for a prescription.
I wish you good health.

my mom had bilateral cortisone/novocaine shoulder injections April 17 for osteoarthritis. Not taking any other medications regularly, but April 20, she started itching and today she s itching something fierce. don t you normally treat drug reactions in this manner WITH prednisone and Benadryl? If that s the case, I m guessing the reaction is coming from the novocaine and not the cortisone. How can we treat this on a home level without another visit to the doctor? Right now she s using hydrocortisone cream and ice cubes.

Hi, back in march I was diagnosed with poison oak/ivy on my lower legs. My doctor prescribed prednisone for about 13 days(20mg...3aday for 3 days, 2aday for 3days and so on). My legs did start to clear up. However I started new rashes on my stomach,arms,under breast that appear to be contact dermititis and about a week or so after finishing the meds, he put me on another round of prednisone for about 9days..same strength and also gave me a prednisone shot. The rash starting looking better. I also took some oatmeal baths,using aveeno lotion,and taking benydryl as well.But here I am again, and about 4days to a week later after finishing prednisone and I am in worse shape. My rash is more wide spread, but doesn t always itch but it can be painful around my bra line..i guess from the heat/sweat. Do you have any idea why this is happening? Thanks.

I have a sinus infection. My doctor prescribed a 50mg (5 x 10mg tablets) dose of Prednisone once a day, along with an antbiotic (Ciprofloxacin HCL) . I am on my 3rd dose heading into day four. I cannot sleep at all and am concerned about the lack of sleep, starting to feel strange mentally. My questions are If I stop taking the Prednisone today, cold-turkey, will I suffer any extreme side effects? or is 3-days/doses enough for it to matter, if I stop taking it now? FYI, I have no previous health conditions (other than my sinus infection) and never take any type of drug.
