Nothing is ever simple since PMR. Banged my shin 3 weeks ago, expected the small cut to heal after a few days, HA! 3 days later I had bruising all the way down around my ankle and foot like you wouldn't believe. After a week I called at the local minor injuries unit who confirmed it was bruised (no s**t sherlock) and sent me away. I knew something wasnt right as started to get the shoulder pains back after being pain free on 10mg pred for the past 4 weeks. Managed to get a last minute appt with the GP yesterday who diagnosed cellulitis, antibiotics and sent me to the CDU at the hospital just to make sure the extra pain and swelling in my very red and hot leg wasnt a DVT, thankfully it isnt as i am flying to spain again next week. Will give the antibiotics chance to put things right before i up the pred dose, hopefully everything will settle down quickly
