Rheumatoid Arthritis

I am troubled by the most excruciating pains in my ankles and under my heel. Dr suggested rheumatoid arthritis and prescribed prednesole (not sure of the spelling) 8 per day for 10 days. This brought a huge relief but I am scared as to what''s gonna happen after the 10 days. Do you have any suggestions as to what I can do to deal with the pain please?

DR. Do you know who I can see for Rheumatoid arthritis in the Rustenburg Northe West Province. I sympathise with Yvonne as it is painful. I am taking Arthro Guard and it defininately helps but my health care adviser told me to look for aRhematologist for correct medication as it is a disease. I also take at night 200g Celebrex. So if you do know a doctor who can help in this area I would be most grateful. best regards Lilly.
