Hi, I'm new here and glad I found this site. Finally, after months of badgering GP he now thinks I have PMR and being referred to Rheumatologist. Been taking 15mg Prednisolone for few weeks now and feel better pain-wise but still very fatigued. After always being energetic this has really shaken me to the core. My recent blood test revealed blood counts ok, but slightly anaemic and folic acid levels reduced. Although I presented all classic symptoms only my CRP was raised slightly, although I understand this can happen judging by other people's reports. Glad I persisted with GP, although initial reaction a to say 'you get aches and pains as you get older' wasn't helpful. My daughter suffers from severe fibromyalgia (8 yrs now) and now registered disabled. Anyone else have family connection to these two debiliating diseases?
