In pain for over three months, Dr that did the nerve testing on me felt my symptoms could be PMR along with carpal tunnel syndrome put me on steroid, GP felt I did not have PMR due to my blood levels and took me off of Prednisone. Pain returned and for the third time I was started on Pred after I called my GP back and said I don't know why I have this pain, but I can't take it. For the third time the pain was all gone after two pills. I was referred to a rheumatologist in the beginning of June and the first available was mid September. The good news I wanted to share was that they had a cancellation (I've been calling them) and I get to see the specialist on July 12th!! I can't wait to hear her recommendation. I don't want to have PMR, don't want to stay on a steroid if I don't need it, but I just want some answers and not be in pain too. I'm so thankful for this group and all the great advice I was given. Hope you all have a great day!
