Recently diagnosed with GCA and PMR, and feeling so better on steroids yet had a gentle reminder today. The young man was asking me to raise both my legs high enough so he could get a wedge beneath them for my bone density scan. He kept asking me to move my legs higher when I thought I was! I just couldn't get my muscles to move anymore. How embarrassing to have to ask for help. It's only two weeks or so on the steroids. I just didn't realize my extreme movements were still limited. Oh well.
Thankful for the diagnosis, and nervous for my new journey! I can't imagine what is is like for folks who are still struggling without care.
