I am on Prednisone and Methotrexate for RA. Saw my Gynochologist yesterday. She did not find anything and told me to wait 2 weeks. The pain is getting increasingly worse. Is there any connection?
I experienced right sided chest/breast pain on & off for years. I suffer from bad reflux (gord). I never believed my Dr that it was coming from my reflux as it is referred pain into the right breast. However she was absolutely correct. I just took an extra nexium & the pain disappeared. Prednisone is harsh on the gut & gord is one of the side effects. You can also take 1 Tspn of bicarb soda in a glass of water (tastes horrible) but it really helps. Inflammation is the cause of these problems. Hope it helps you.
