On treatment for PMR. Pain in the muscles. History of Factor V Leiden and TIA. Advice?
being treated for PMR... but by reading this is not the correct diagnosis.I am currently non 10 mg pred. Been on pred for 6 months. Wake up rested , tire from activity and esp any repetious muscle activity leaves me in pain days to a week. Sed rate high 58. Low 22. Also a Factor V Leiden patient with history of previous TIA.
Thanks for writing to us.
The persistent pain in the muscles is not likely to respond to the steroids that you are taking for last 6 months,. You need to taper off the doses after consulting your physician and start with some pain killers.
