Hi all, I just wanted to say a big thankyou to the advice and support I received on this site earlier in the year. I was a 45 yr old male who fell ill in late February with terrible muscle pain in my legs and arms and suffered dramatic weight loss (2 stone over a few weeks). I was in hospital for two weeks whilst the doctors tried to work out what was wrong and it wasn't until I came under the care of Dr Rod Hughes at Chertsey that I started to get some answers (he believed I had a PMR related illness and I was put on a course of Prednisolone). Once I was back at home with an idea of what was wrong with me I was delighted to find the PMR support group. It provided great comfort and advice at a time when I was at a very low ebb and I'm forever thankful for the words of wisdom from many sources ( special thanks must go to Shirley, PMR Pro, Dorset Lady). I'm happy to report that i have been back full time at work for the past 2 months and feel back to my best. I've been signed off by Dr Hughes who believed I had suffered from a PMR type "post viral myalgia". Best wishes to all, I hope my experience shows that there can be a light at the end of the tunnel. x
