Hi. Welcome to JustAnswer. I shall try my best to assist you while you are corresponding with me.
How long have you been on steroids for?
Do you have any previously diagnosed medical conditions and are you on any other medication as well?

Hi. We can continue after this if you'd like but methotrexate and biologics like Humira can also be effective without the steroids
