Hi, I have just been diagnosed about 5 weeks ago. This is all very scary stuff to me as I'm an active 53 year old and now feel like a little old granny. I have just found this forum and it's full of very helpful stuff I didn't know and it does make me feel that I'm not alone in this journey. It appears it's going to be a very long one. My doc started me on 15mg of Pred which seemed to work within a couple of days until the second week I couldn't get out of bed again. He put it up to 20mg for a couple of days then told me to reduce to 15mg again. This past week I'm back on 20mg, the pain is getting worse again. It just feels like I'm never going to be pain free again 😞
