Do you think I should ask my rheumy for it - instead of taking prednisone?
I don’t think so. As I said, it’s used for those conditions in addition to gout. I thought it was odd when I was put on it, but now we are planning that I will stay on it indefinitely, because it does keep things under control. Every time that we start weaning I have a flare of this crap, and it feels like it’s harder to get it back under control every time.
Wow, great article! My pain started on the back of my heels, but also under the feet. Glad you finally figured it out!
