If you have been utilizing corticosteroids any time in the last year, what you're experience could what they call "pseudo-rheumatism," which is arthritis-like joint inflammation tied to your Hypothalamus-Pituitary-Adrenal (HPA) Axis, which drugs like Prednisone knock right out of whack.
Now, I say any time in the last year, as it can take about that long for adrenal glands to get back up to speed, after being fatigued, or totally shut right down, by synthetic cortisol use. Yet, in a percentage of people (around 12% or so, according to one source) these steroids can induce fibromyalgia, which would spell out pain lasting longer than a year -- lasting a lifetime. D:
