My shoulders, hips, bottom and biceps are still very tender when pressed. Does anyone else find this, my Rheumy is under the impression muscles should not be tender. The Prednisolone does help wonderfully with pain and stiffness when I am on 10mgs, but tenderness is still there. Been on Pred since last Dec, Rheumy keen for me to be on 8mgs or less, even though day to day activities are a struggle on 8mgs due to stiffness and pain. She tells me 9 months on I should now be on a lower dose, yet when I look at comments on the forum, lots are on higher doses after several years.
Still waiting to see new Rheumy end of Nov re GCA type symptoms, but due to see the other one this Wednesday. Fed up trying to jump through hoops just to please my current a Rheumatologist . Runrig
