My tail started in April 14 at 48 year old with sudden knee stiffness and excruciating shoulder and elbow pain and the muscle in between pain. Put up with it for a couple of weeks and then saw Gp who didnt look up or listen and 'diagnosed' a sprain Offered cocodamol and sent home, 3 days later i hobbled back to gp in tears saw a different doc who gave 5 days of 30mg pred, all symtoms resolved in 3 days but only lasted a few days after tabs stopped. long n short eventually got rhumatology appts and steroid injections that gave short term relief but no diagnosis. Jan 15 and I am now in a PMR study and on 15 mg pred and a week in almost all symtoms have eased. But have a head cold from hell that will not shift, it started before i started taking the pred and refuses to leave!
