Hi, I am an otherwise healthy 63 year old woman who recently developed a massive headache! Not only has it lasted 24 days now, I have spots on my temples that are tender to the touch, my hips ache and I have shooting pains down my legs! As if that weren't enough I am utterly exhausted. Two trips to the hospital in a week and four blood tests, show an elevated ESR, but a normal CRP, both times. They won't do a biopsy because the numbers don't support it. They put me on 40 (and have increased it to 60) mg of Prednisolone which I have been taking now for 5 days, but headache comes back every day late afternoon, early evening and this feeling of total exhaustion overtakes me. Should the steroids have taken away the pain by now? Should I still be so tired. Seeing a Rheumatologist next week. Any advice?
