I'd been becoming exhausted and getting lots of aches and pains for over a year before I got ny GP to take me seriously and was diagnosed with it 4 months ago. I have COPD as well (due to being a lifelong asthmatic, never smoked). When I first started on 15mg prednisolone I had immediate pain relief and energy for about 2 wks but the exhaustion came back quite quickly and now some pain in my hips and shoulders. I've been dragging myself into work for the last few months (4days a wk), now feel I really need to give up for my health but doubt I would get ill health retirement... any ideas anyone?
