    Hi

    Is there anyone on here with experience of polymyalgia?

    My mum has had this for 5 months and just started on prednisone 3 weeks ago. She has been so ill but improving. But now has high blood pressure and still losing weight.

    Anyone in the same position?

    Thanks for your help

    I'm not to sure but I believe its a form of Arthritis ,like Rhuematoid.I looked it up awhile ago and I think thats what it said.i do remember that it could be quite painful. God Bless you and your mom. How sweet and caring of you to show such concern about your mom. Good luck.Danisue
