I have been off prednisone since last October, I had slowly reduced and all my blood checks are normal, however I,m far from feeling better now that I clear of PMR . My symptoms are , pain in upper arms when trying to reach out for something ,but only with my arms in a certain position or when using spanner’s etc at work , I get arm pains at night when turning over in bed ( as I did with PMR ) . All this with tiredness and stiffness when walking . I am taking 20mg of Nortriptylene to help me sleep and painkillers, Zapain tablets as needed .
I,m not getting far trying to get a diagnosis , if it’s not PMR what is it ?
I am due to see the rheumatologist next month and I could do with some answers if only to put my mind at Rest .
Hope I,ve not rambled too much
