Joint, Muscle Pain After Inactivity Possible PMR
I’m being treated with hydroxychloroquine for the pain in my hips, elbows, neck etc. that occurs when I wake up. The pain gets a little better as the day goes on.
I’ve also been diagnosed with occipital neuralgia so my head, face, scalp, and teeth hurt.
With all of this I was sure my inflammation markers would be high, but they aren’t. To me this all feels like PMR and Giant Cell Arteritis. My rheumatologist is treating my pain as best she can, and I know prednisone is the answer for PMR/GCA.
I’m going for physical therapy. They are trying to figure out why my back and hips hurt. So far they haven’t been helpful.
Everyday is an adventure! Thanks for listening
