Hi all, I've seen my GP today about my aching upper arms which I've had since Jan/Feb.
She had diagnosed this complaint as being Polymyalgia and has given me Prednisolone to be started tomorrow after breakfast. The dosage is 5mg x 4 together each morning for one week until I see her again. On reading the side effects on the enclosed leaflet this steroid sounds very scary to say the least. Just want to know if anyone else on here has been diagnosed with this illness and been prescribed this drug, and did it help.?
