I haven't posted for a while and hope I do it correctly. I was diagnosed in Dec 17 with GCA/PMR. I started on 40 mg now on 15mg, struggling but coping. I am struggling with weight gain, over a stone, even though I am trying to cut out carbs as suggested. Also my skin is in a dreadful state. I only need to slightly tap my legs or arms and the skin rips like paper, bleeds and then red marks appear. They look dreadful. I am so fed up can't wear my normal clothes because I'm too fat and my legs and arms look awful. I have lost my confidence and have constant shakes. I am hoping that you very knowledgeable people may have some hints/ tips or any ideas that may help. I have had to give up work because of fatigue. When will this awful journey end. ????
