I have just been diagnosed with Large Vessel Vasculitis. Been advised to take Prednisolone, but can't take this drug as 1 year ago i was prescribed it for Polmyalgia. The effects have been devastating to say the least, these include;; no taste buds, hair coming out, large stomach, 5 fractures to my back, with excruciating pain, muscle aches and pain,, lost 4ins in height, gone down to 8stone 13, from 10stone. Looking for an alternative drug or a natural cure which i would prefer. Only symptons i have now are aching muscles in my arms and legs. Would appreciate any feed back or advise in this matter. Thanks and best regards.
