My pain is intensifying by leaps and bounds over the past 2 years. It starts at the scapula bones and goes right down to below the kidneys around my sides(where it piques) and right around front to my ribs. I take 500 mgs. Gabopentin and sometimes Ibuprofen 800. I'm going on vacation so I asked my doc for a 15 day round of Prednazone, something I rarely do but twice a year for special occasions.
What works for others?

Culprit- probably arthritis
