Hi all. I saw my GP yesterday for my HRT check up and mentioned a few seemingly unrelated issues, neck and shoulder pain, strange feeling in the ball of my feet, tinnitus and a patch of excema (which I have never had before). All of these have been going on for a while but seemed too trivial to bother the GP with. After getting me to move my arms in various ways (which flippin hurt) he told me that he thinks i have polymyalgia and i need to book to have blood tests. As there was a queue at reception I decided to phone later to make the appoitment. I got home and went on line to find out what polymyalgia is......and scared the life out of myself !!
I was treated for Graves disease in 2013 and, on prednisone, gained 4stone and have only lost 3 of them so far 😞 so, just when i am beginning to look and feel like myself again I hsve to accept that i will be on the steroid treadmill again.😰 All my new found self-confidence is fling out of the window😶😥
