Hello, my name is Sylvia (71) and was diagnosed with Polymialgia Rheumatica the week before Christmas. My condition is managed by taking steroids plus other pills to counteract the side effects i.e. bone loss and stomach problems. The tablet I am most worried about is the Alendronic Acid which I take once a week as that can cause side effects too! I've only taken one so far! Any comments gratefully received! Happy New Year!
