Will steroids/methotrexate stop joint pain

Hi
I have just started prednisolone for 9 weeks and I am due to start methotrexate in 2 weeks time, has this helped anyone's arthritis/joint pain. Before Crohns I was a very active person, never sitting down, I am trying to fight it and keep going but I end up in agony with my knees, ankles and hips. I feel so frustrated and tired. Paracetamol just doesn't touch the pain, I am hoping the medication will help soon.

Thanks

I think that if you are on it for a prolonged period it sometimes causes osteoporosis. I hope you get relief soon.
