Hi, I am new to this group. I am 47 years old and have had neck, shoulder and pelvic pain and stiffness for 15 months. It came on 4 days after having flu vaccine, my GP has said from outset I have classic polymyalgia symptoms. He referred me to Rheumatologist who was sceptical because of my age and normal bloods. However after lots of tests she started me on Prednisolone 5 weeks ago, and I was virtually pain free after 4 hours. Since Sunday I have had a low grade ache in my Temple areas of my head and lots of tenderness in the temple region. I also have had blurriness of my vision on and off for the past few months which I put down to my Amitrtiptyline tablets. I am due to see my Rheumatologist on Wednesday, but am I worrying unnecessarily.
