Hello from Scotland. For 6-7 months I complained of getting up in morning feeling battered. Got to the stage I couldnt lift my arm in morning to answer the phone, scary when you live alone. Was sure I had Fibromyalgia , or maybe just getting older .. 57.. Eventually saw a new doctor, she said I'm sure this s PMR , Id ever heard of it . Bloods done and yes it was confirmed . I'm now on day 5 steroids. This is the best I've felt wakening up , still a struggle to get up but what a difference shown already. I came across this group and so glad as I can learn from your experiences and identify with many I'm sure. I'm on the 3 x 5mg Prednisolone mornings . A bit concerned about the long term of being on them, side effects etc . I will learn..
