Hi Ger and well done for having the courage to fight back against your illness. Hopefully there are pain killers that can help with the muscle pain. Best of luck !

Hi Hidden , I had polymyalgia a few years ago and was treated with huge doses of prednisolone. And I ate and ate ! Going from a size 10 to size 18. Beware and I hope you`re pain free soon. Sheila x
