I am now 47 and have been suffering from what my GP
says is PMR and Fibromyalgia for over two years.
A year ago I woke up in agony with pains in my legs, hips, thighs, knees, chest , shoulder and arms.
Doc said gave me 15mg prednisolone and it worked wonders but not any more.
Have been on pred since trying to reduce slowly but had flair ups.
Got Rheumatologist who wants MRI and X-rays on hands and feet.
This is to see any damage from rheumatoid arthritis.
He doubted whether I had PMR as He considers me too young so thinks that it could be something else.Waiting for appointment dates too come through.
Also he wants me to completely stop pred as he wants to see me whilst I am not benefiting from effects pain wise.
I am now on 2mg.
Next rheumy app on 1st June.
The pain is so bad, Feel like I have massive saddle soreness cannot walk and utter fatigue.
Pain like never before even on really strong pain killers.
SORRY I don't feel as though I am expressing myself very well
ANY ONE ELSE GOT PMR AT WHAT IS CONSIDERED “TOO” YOUNG...IN 40S????
If its not PMR then what the hell is it???
