Hi, I’m new to the group my name is Angie I’m 49 yrs old I had surgery in April to remove 2 discs from my cervical spine with fusion, surgery went well and recovery was really good until about 4 weeks ago I started with pain in my groin almost like I had been doing hundreds of squats (I wish 🙂 it then progressed to both hips both knees and both shoulders to the point where I can’t get up from sitting or lying down the pain is horrendous. I contacted the Walton Centre where I had my surgery and they brought my post op appointment forward to Friday just gone and the specialist suspects PMR. I had an appointment booked at the drs for the afternoon told her what the specialist said and she agreed as the bloods I had done my inflammatory markers were extremely high so she started me on 15mg of prednisilone I took the 3 tablets at 4pm and they started taking affect straight away I had a good nights sleep and took the next lot of tablets at 10am on the Saturday felt loads better and could get around easier dr told me from the Sunday to start taking them in the morning and I’ve not slept all night and the pain is even worse this morning my husband had to help me out of bed and it took 10 minutes for me to get down stairs. Question! Should I be on a higher dose? This is all new to me so any advise would be greatly appreciated. Sorry for the long post Angie x
