Hello. I'm fairly new. Diagnosed April 2013 after blood tests. Had aches. Pain generally from neck . Down back and pelvis. Thought it was old age (62).been on 20mg Pred. Now 15mg. Aches seem to have gone. But getting bit of neck stiffness. Also have a feeling of 'tense' head. Had antibiotics couple of weeks ago for synus. Feels like my specs are too tight. They arent. I work for an optician. I also feel as though there's a lump in my throat. Gaining a pound a week! Wide awake ar silly hours during night. I also take A Acid weekly for the old bones. Reading bloggs and questions, I feel as though mine is a mild condition. Am I becoming paranoid folks. Just thought I'd run it by you. Keep well.
