I have previously posted with historic developments from my farthers time line through PMR/R/A diagnosis to recent developments and treatments for shingles, salmonella bacteria and over the last couple of days pneumonia and finally Adrenal gland fatigue. The latter of which they are now doubling his pred from 30-60ml to kick start his Adrenal gland which they say has gone to sleep?
Ironically even though he has been off the metex and humera for over five weeks he has had no pain R/A PMR pain symptoms since.
The concerns now are the infections he seems to be picking up and the Adrenal gland fatigue. Like all of us we continue to look for the golden answer to his condition over the last 12 months since his initial complaint and diagnosis of frozen shoulder. With the recent developments we now find ourselves looking at the link between the Adrenal gland fatigue, pneumonia and the PMR-R/A symptoms which have consistent indicators such as:
Mussel / joint pain
Heavy sweating situations
Disillusioned & uninterested at times
Abnormal sleeping patterns
Weeks immune system (always put down to treatment)
Again this is a very complicated case, even the rhumy specialist is amazed that he currently has no pain. We are seeking a joint consultation with his rhumy & bio specialists hoping that a open discussion may provide some factual data that could be analysed for further diagnosis and treatment
We are wondering if anyone has had a similar situation / experience that may provide a link from the infection condition that may mirror over the R/A PMR
Thanks again for your wonderful support
