Hi, I have recently been diagnosed with PMR, I'm only 45 with 2 young kids and am wondering if this is right?? I have constant pain in my legs plus arthritis in my knees and I'm thinking I'm too young for all of this. In the mornings I can hardly walk until I have got myself moving and am suffering from chronic fatigue plus depression. But it is only in my legs! Can it just be like that? They have put me on steroids saying that if it works then that's the diagnosis. The first week worked brilliantly then went down hill but then again I was so busy and constantly in my feet during half term I'm not surprised. I seriously hit a brick wall after that and couldn't function and completely broke down/apart.
They have put me on pred And I can't stop eating and reckon I have put a stone on in 3 weeks!!! I keep getting serious hot flushes and I am still not sleeping well. I don't know what is worse. Last week I stepped them down for the first time (I'm only on a 2 month course) and suffered the "brick wall" again and am absolutely shattered again!!
God my life is so depressing right now. I have looked at some of your posts but ran out of mental energy to read it all. Any help advice or anything would be gratefully received
many thanks xx
