I went to see my GP about three weeks ago, with several problems associated with PMR/GCA. Briefly, he said I had tendonitis, wasn't really concerned and said it would last for quite a while and I could try a support. An actual support on the elbow is too painful, and now this pain seems to have gone to my shoulder too - has anyone else suffered with something like this and was it tendonitis?
Dentist thinks I have sjogren's -
Still feeling generally exhausted and anxious, I think perhaps I am finally realising I need several months off work not just a couple of weeks, then I go back and struggle on. Currently having to take a weeks annual leave roughly every four weeks to re-charge as much as I can.
My bloods are a little 'strange' he said so he has run another full screen for the usual and something else he was concerned about (he didn't say what) and and I getting results tomorrow.
I also am seeing my Rhuemy this week - so will be interested in his comments. Just got down to 15mg preds this week.
How should I be feeling on 15mg? (diagnosed last June) should I be still having the side effects of the preds (tinnitus, palpitations, trembles, sweats and all the other usual ones) - and still feeling exhausted.
Thank you - sorry for another post but I have the habit of seeing my Rheumy (who I am sure is great, but does not make eye contact with me or really 'talk' ) and coming out none the wiser - and my GP who sympathises but when I said about being signed off he said you may never go back so I don't recommend it - hence I am struggling with a really stressful job and feel if I am not careful I am going to end up right back where I started from.
