On husband's third trip to the ER (for Prednisone as Dr was out of town) the ER Dr. suggested he had polymalgia Rheumatica. He has every single symptom of it. Supposedly it's only treated with Prednnisone (steroids) and that is the only thing that has helped him. He has an appointment with a rheumatologist on the 19th of July. In the meantime his primary DR has given him Celebrex as the rheumatologist needs Prednisone out of his system for blood tests. We are very nervous about
this as his pain is excruciating without steroids (20 mg.).
If anybody has had this or heard of this disease, any advice will be appreciated.
