Good afternoon everyone, I have a few questions. A year ago I developed a rash which started on my legs and went to my arms, buttocks, chest and stopped short of my neck and face. I have since realized it looked like a rash on the Vasculitis website. The doctor, urgent care thought it was an allergic reaction to something, he put me on a seven day regime of prednisone and it didn't take it away so I finally went back and they gave me a shot of prednisone, that helped with the itching and it eventually went away. Anyway, it lasted about 3 months then two months later is when all the symptoms is Polymyalgia hit me. I was finally diagnosed six weeks ago. When the Polymyalgia first hit me I noticed my veins in my legs were showing more on the surface and I was getting varicose veins and my muscles looked like they were going away. After being on the prednisone now for six weeks I have realized my varicose veins have lessened and when I went for labs yesterday the tech had a hard time getting a vein in my arm, that has never happened. I am also experiencing a "pins and needles" feeling all over my body, like clusters of electrical shocks. Yesterday it was really bad. Do any of you have this? I don't want to think the worst but I know wee have to stay vigilant to help ourselves as a lot of the time our doctors are in such a hurry to push out the door they don't take the time to listen. Any thoughts will be helpful. I go to my doctor next week and want to be able to ask the right questions and ask for the proper tests, if any are necessary. Thank you all so much, having all of you to ask questions really helps.
