I’m GCA since March 2017 and I’ve fared pretty well considering...no fatigue so I’ve kept up the exercising without overdoing i too much. Im now down at 3mg having held for 5 months at 5mg and I’ve reduced using dead slow to get to this dose. Anyway, since Christmas, I have started to have problems with my right rotator cuff, can’t sleep on that side at night etc and just a bit of a dull ache a lot of the time. This last week I decided to sand down my big kitchen table ready for re oiling. Now I’ve got even worse problems with my left cuff!
I’m just wondering whether my ligaments and rotator cuffs have been damaged by Pred over the past two years or whether I am experiencing the first symptoms of PMR? I had a blood test 3 weeks ago which was normal...I’ll get it re done this week and see whether things have changed. Has anyone had the same? Does it sound like PMR? I’d be really grateful to hear your feedback.
