I asked you all Weds/Thursday why I should still feel so poorly? And took all your comments on board, really helpful.
However, having read the thread about putting too much pressure on your body gardening - I had a thought. On the Saturday before, I was knocked to the ground by my horse - (I cannot muck out or ride, but thought I would turn her out and being fresh she bowled my over!), so I was winded and sore that day -but thought nothing of it. However, as the week continued, I felt worse and worse (hence my post in the week), I was kept awake with PMR pain all last night, especially knees, neck and shoulders, and was really stiff this morning - also having head pain and tender temples so I was concerned as I have GCA>
So having reduced to 17.5 mgs 3 weeks ago, going back up to 20mg last week (on doc's advice - still having symptoms), today I have gone back up to 25 mgs.
I was diagnosed in June, started on 40 for 3 weeks, then 35, for 3, then 30 for 2 then 25 for 3 then 20 for 3 then 17.5 until I put it back up last week. So I am back now to 25mg, bit concerned what the rhemy will say.
Am I ok to put the steroid up if I am struggling with pain? And could the fall have aggravated this condition? He gave me no information regarding a flare up of symptoms.
Sorry to ask so many questions ...... but thank you!
