Polymyalgia Rheumatica newly diagnosed
Hi Im a fit 56yr old male and just got diagnosed. GP put me on inflamatories first then 20mg steroids. Pain still still v bad in shoulders and hips so eventually sent to hospital for tests for 3 days. On high dose in hospital so felt quite good. On 40mg steroids now since sat 15th May 2021. Feel better than i was but way off my normal. Tried walking today in field beside me and it took me 9minutes to walk 300m. Thats one week into my treatment. I thought it would be getting much better by now. Anyone with similiar experiences?
