I have just joined this group. I was diagnosed with this condition in January 2017, although I suspect that I have had it for some time previously. On my last blood test in February I was on 3mg of Prednisolone and the condition under control. My doctor then advised me to start again with Cholesterol tablets. As I continued with a reduction of 1mg per month. I started with muscle pains in my left arm, this has now progressed to both arms, but only on certain movements, as well as neck stiffness. I am sure that I read that the steroids and the Symvastin were not an ideal mix. . Its been nearly 2 weeks now that I have stopped taking the steroids. I do not feel any worse, but I seem to be getting frequent cold symptoms. I recently had a Thai massage, which appears to have helped with my neck stiffness, and I am doing gradual stretching exercises, which are also assisting. I have no real desire to return to taking the steroids, but will wait and see what my next blood test will reveal
