I started full PMG Sept.2015. All the classic symptoms plus weight loss, malaise and changed bowel movement. Checked out for cancer, finally diagnosed. Started on 5mg steroid ( apparently a mistake ) immediate magic relief. Now finished with medication 14 days and feeling great. Fingers crossed!
I was given statins many years ago and was really disabled. I now will not take them. I have had all sorts of aches and pains which have been undiagnosable. I have minimal amount of arthritis for my age. I am wondering if there is a relationship with statins. Four of my friends have PMG. Is the incidence increasing with the increase in statin prescribing?
