I have been given a "soft" diagnosis of both SLE Lupus and RA, but my Rheumatologist is not sure, as my ANA and related numbers are low. However, when I was put on Prednisone, my energy absolutely spiked and my joint pain was greatly relieved. So I'm wondering if that confirms the diagnosis; or if that is typical of everyone that takes Prednisone regardless of diagnosis.
