Posted a week or so ago about sore elbow (self inflicted I think after cleaning the decking) - this is now feeling much better - just a bit sore. Thanks for all your advice.
In the end i just took paracetamol to numb the pain - chemist advice was not to take Ibruprofen with steroids at all as there is an increased risk of stomach bleeding.
Since the elbow pain - have had ups and downs - feeling quite unwell --- tired, quite headachey, feeling of nausea at times during each day for the last week ......... like the beginnings of a migraine but it fades and then comes back. I have been a migraine sufferer in the past particularly over the menopause years but haven't had a migraine for at least a year. Also woke up with sore right shoulder this morning - no explanation for that.
Am seeing Dr on Monday for results of Bone scan and blood tests for inflammation markers and thyroid test results..... pre blood test she suggested I may have to reduce Thryroxine again (last summer on 150mcg - now on 100mcg) as I am at the top end of her chart.
Will have to ask if I can take the Migraleve tablets for migraine which were prescribed pre steroid - has anyone take these with steroids?
Oh dear - feel like I am rattling with pills for various ailments and am feeling a bit sorry for myself. My first 3 months on the steroids were pain free and I felt fine altogether... into the 4th month and not so good.
