Started with PMR six years ago and prescribed prednisolone which brought about a dramatic improvement. Since then I have been diagnosed Osteoporosis, Rheumatoid Arthritis and Osteo Arthritis which I'm told is pretty aggressive.
I have been tried on various medication regimes and the latest is Paracetomol 2 four times a day. Amitriptyline 30mg daily and Enbrol weekly injections.
I would be interested in hearing of effective management without sedation because this aspect of treatment seems to be hit or miss.
I have particularly bad pain in the shoulders and neck and the rheumatologist says thee damage is done so far as those parts of my body are concerned.
Any contributed information would be gratefully received
