i am new here. I had stiffness etc from just after my first covid vaccine and have seen someone else mention theirs started after the first one too so so im interested this was mentioned. It was over on another site but lots of replies suggested coming on here instead. I mentioned the vaccine coincidence to my doctor as he insisted im too young for PMR even though im almost 51 and symtoms perfectly match
I suggested the vaccine could be responsible but he didn't think so as seen no one else with it just after. But how do they know when most have had the vaccine now ? Anyway. After ruling out Lupas RA myeloma and scaring me to death. He has put me on steroids. Was on 15mg for four days. Had a review. Whilst the stiffness and movement has improved I've not noticed a drastic improvement so he's upped it to 20mg. Started this yesterday. Expected to be like a gazelle this morning but not much difference. Am I being impatient. Worrying it is something else after all. Everything I read online says it should be like a miracle overnight ??
Any advice would be great. Thank you
