I've got a really horrible virus and possible chest infection(seeing GP tomorrow)but am getting a lot of pain in my calves,knees and mid-back- I also cracked my ribs 5 weeks ago, but this seems a different kind of pain and is in the back rather than in the front-my skin feels sore to the touch and there are areas that feel bruised but don't look it. Is this PMR symptoms returning due to the virus? And, if so, do I need to up my medication? I am actually seeing the Rheumatologist tomorrow so could wait till then but it would be helpful to get some ideas.
