I have been given my test results regarding whether I have PMR or not and, apart from my vitamin D being minutely lower than it should be, all of my symptoms have been put down to stress. I just can't believe it. I have been given some vitamin D supplements and 10% ibuprofen gel to rub on my muscles. I didn't know if I should have been disappointed or not. Well actually I am devastated because I have literally been told to get on with my life for the foreseeable future and I felt as if I was now not being believed and was making up/lying about my pain. This has caused me a great deal of stress, believe me. I was half hoping that I had a diagnosis for PMR so that I could start to get some useful and relevant help. If all this pain and total loss of energy is down to stress I would like to express my utmost respect for everyone who is quietly having to put up with the levels of pain above any that I am enduring.. My pain is excruciating so I can not imagine how you are all feeling.
