Hope everyone had a lovely Christmas....had a great time with family and felt pretty good except for costo niggle. Boy oh boy ..the calm before the storm....I am in such pain with costo ..sternum, ribs and back and now my shoulders have started....stupidly I changed bed linen after family left......On pred taper at moment 20mg for past week down from 40 4 weeks, 30 i week . I really dont want to go up again as rheumy is not convinced its PMR apart from after steroid all tests negative. I wonder could this be Costo alone which Ive had for about 2 years just taking hold. Any advice please Shoud I take an NSAID with a stomach tab or is it not advisable with pred. Paracetemol doesnt budge any pain. Feeling so sorry for myself I know I sould like a moany minnie !!!
