The last five weeks I have been feeling really ill, tired and in a lot of pain when I wake up with stiffness in my joints. My good leg has stopped working (I have had a bit of a dodgy hip for years) and I can hardly walk. I also have cramp in my legs and sometimes in my hands.My GP has ordered loads of blood tests and I asked for a vitamin tests as well, I am told that if I have poly myalgia rheumatic as she suspects I will need steroids. I have read that these can affect you mentally and I am really worried as I struggle to stay in a positive frame of mind since being really depressed before I was diagnosed some ten years ago. Any advice please or if there could be other causes.
