I'm writing on behalf of my little mum she's 84 bless her and has been suffering with polymyalgia all through the summer. She's an extreamly young and fit 84. She does her Rosemary Connaly work our 3 times a week is a size 8 and and loves to shop in Next. My query or help needed is that she just started taking Predinsolone for the Polymyalgia and she's worrying herself silly over the side effects that 'might' happen I'm trying my best to keep her calm but not understanding this drug myself I feel a bit out of my depth. Plus I live 6-7 hrs away from her. So it's not like I can pop in to give her a hug bless her. I think she's only on a small dose of 3 tablets for a week then to reduce them. She's been suffering the pain all through the summer because she's been so scared of the steroids. She only started them Friday gone, She's saying that her hands are shaking 😗 I can't see this in the list of side effects but wondered if it's from where she's just getting over worked up.
