Just took my last dose of prednisone in this run. Didn’t touch it. I let the doc know and she called in a scrip for colchicine. Never had it but I read some good reports. If this doesn’t cut it then off to a specialist. I took your advice and started the allopurinol right away but the doctor still swears that’s a bad idea. I read the link you posted about it being fine to do, but that doesn’t seem to be the popular notion around here. I’m a little discouraged given the amount of pain I’m still in.
