messagePolymyalgia - any experiences?
Posted by Sue February 21, 01:49PM

It never rains etc etc.

I've just been put on steroids for what is almost certainly polymyalgia (If they get rid of the pain, it is), and I'm wondering if anybody has any experience of this they would be happy to share with me, either on here or via PM?

I've done a lot of googling and I'm quite concerned about the potential side effects of the steroids sad smiley however I couldn't continue as I was as the pain was preventing me doing things, so steroids were basically the lesser of two evils sad smiley

Ouch sorry to hear it. My mum has suffered with it. The good thing is, once it got under under control the steroids were phased out. Occasionally, flare ups happen and meds are needed again. Itís like all things, it needs treatment and the treatment has effects, but those effects beat being in agony.
