Mid November 2011, these pains I was feeling, was not like my normal workout pains. it was incredible pain just to turn from side to side while laying in bed. As the weeks progressed the pain got woarse. I would cry just trying to get into bed and laying down. My back, hips, knees, and both shoulders and into my back really hurt. The only thing that would help was steroids. (I am not the type to even take Advil) I gave in and started Methylpred Jan 20th 2012. I am down to one 4 mg methylpred per day, PT did help, but I am still really stiff after sitting. I am losing my hair also! So I decided to take Biotin, Glucosamine and MSM, and Omega 3. Any suggestions would help!
