Hi, I was diagnosed with polymyalgia last October and have had two courses of steroids. Every time I come down and stop the pain comes back big time. As my hair was thinning and started falling out and I was tired all the time and I now have osteoporosis (which I dint before) I decided I did not want to take steroids any more and have been trying to work through the pain.
Cant get out of bed in the morning, shuffle around like an old lady and when i sit down I have trouble getting up. Pain is relentless even at night, so today put myself back on steroids. The doctor said I could do this and gave me enough.
As this came out of the blue in the beginning, literally OK one day and not the next does anyone know if it can just go away again.
Sorry to sound so down, I am not depressed, just so fed up with so much pain. legs, hips, shoulders, arms, wrists and neck.
