Definitely see a Rheumy if you can. Mine put me on Actonel (an osteoporosis drug) to protect my bones while on Pred, and a prescription level of vitamin D. Apparently, low vitamin D levels are fairly common and can cause a lot of bone pain. If for some reason you can't see a Rheumy, bring this up with your PCP- s/he can run a simple blood test to check vit D levels, and prescribe something to protect your bones if needed. Hope you feel better soon.
I was on prednisone about a month ago and it was hard. I was so emotional, especially when I started getting off of it. I would cry at the smallest things and get angry/upset over anything.
I agree with the others who have mentioned seeing a Rheumatologist.
I hope you start to feel better soon and they find something that helps you!
I would strongly suggest a Rhume and not osteo. Osteo's take care of bones and only bones. Rhume's take care of inflamtion around the bones. You are on a med for your bones it dosen't take care of what surrounds your bones. Also is the pain right at the joints or the muscles and joints? These type of symptoms need to be looked at by the rhume not the osteo.
Just my opion. I have Ankylosing Spondylitis. Uveitis (form of arthritis in the eye), Osteoarthritis and now lymphoplasmacytic (NHL).
Yes, please....what kind of diet did your doc tell you? My husband continues to try to find relief from the Chron's, the chronic pain, the fatigue...
He has been to a rhuemmy, and she does not think he has arthritis. He has no explanation for his chronic pelvic pain; we have had every test imaginable...
Next stop for us is a "chiropractic neurologist" that his mother swears by...hey, don't laugh, we are ready to try ANYTHING to get some relief.
So, back to the original--what kind of diet does your doc recommend; and specifically what kind of foods are you eating?
