I'm new here but I have been reading lots of your messages and post. I would be so grateful to anyone who could give me some advice or just to tell me I'm not alone. About 4 years ago (after major abdominal surgery ) I woke up one morning thinking I'd got the flu I ached and was stiff all over arms, fingers,legs and upper front of legs it felt like I had been exercising but of course I hadn't. After 3 months of visiting my gp and bloods coming back as normal He gave me pred 10 mg daily and it did the trick so after a quick taper I was off them in about 4 months. Then last sept 2015 I started to get stiff painful buttocks worse in the morning and after resting. Saw gp again and bloods were normal he did give me pred again at 10 mg and wanted me to reduce asap I have tried but oh! The pain. Please is there anyone else that has this awful burning pain and stiffness in both sides of buttocks. Tender points seem to be low down either side of spine. I've upped myself to 11mg of pred and it's a bit easier I'm really worried now.
I just wonder if anyone else has this type of pain and would be kind and advise me
Thank you Elaine X
