Length of flare?
I was diagnosed nine years ago and have not had a flare in several years. Last week I started feeling the tell tale signs of fatigue and pleuritic pain. Was put on a prednisone burst and overall feel better, but still feel “off”. Not sure if it is the prednisone or just being older with this flare, but I remember feeling much better after taking prednisone before and this time it is taking forever! The pain in my chest is gone, but pain radiates to my right shoulder when I breath deep. Anyone else experienced this? How long have you experienced flare symptoms even after starting treatment?
