For the last few evenings I have had terrible cramping type pain in my right leg, making it restless and impossible to get comfortable, and struggle to get to sleep. It starts early evening whilst Im resting watching TV. Does anyone else suffer from this and what do you find helps. Have tried Paracetamol and Tramadol to no effect. The pain is in the thigh muscles as well as the calf and foot. I reduced my Prednisolone 3 weeks ago from 10mgs to 9mgs, my Rheumy wants me to reduce to 8mgs next week.
Still awaiting Neurology opinion re GCA type symptoms. Rheumy skeptical as Im only 48, bloods normal, biopsy negative and MRI normal. But for nearly a year now have had temples burning, jaws cramping, tongue pain and spasms, pains in head around ears and pulsatile tinnitus. every drop makes these symptoms worse, and last time I reached 8mgs pains re to head were unbearable. I have found aspirin stops me being kept awake with tongue spasms Keep hoping one of these days this will all end.
