This is my first post , have been following this site for a couple of months and find it excellent, very informative and supportive.
I have had pain in hips, lower back, knees and thighs for about 9months, have had steroid injections to knee twice but only lasted about 2 weeks and pain returned.
In October I had severe pain in shoulders and arms, and realised I had PMR. GP started me on 15mgs pred , Alendronic acid, Adcal-D3 and Co Codamol 30/500 for pain and next morning I was nearly pain free. This lasted for about 2 weeks and then I developed severe pain in hips, back, thighs and knees. My mobility was poor, sleeping was difficult. After 2 weeks I returned to GP, thought my pain may be due to side effects so discontinued everything except pred and Omeprazole. The pain has not subsided and I see my GP tomorrow. My thoughts are I may have vasculitis or myofascial pain syndrome. I am sure my pain is muscular and not bony.
Had anyone else got any ideas as to what my pain may be, I would be glad of some help.
