    Hello, I'm new to this group. I've lived with FMS/CFS for 15 years. My condition was manageable last few years. Unfortunately, 2 months ago I fell and fractured both arms (radius). I had casts on both for 6 weeks and the bones healed. But now I have huge problems-pain came back (like electric current going up and down my hands and arms), stiffness, rigidity etc. My doc suggested prednisolone for short time (20 mg initially) but I'm afraid to take it bec. of side effects. Will be grateful for any advice, I'm desperate, cant use my hands.
