Hi kd @kdmorris, thank you for your reply and information. John suggested that it may be a pinched nerve but I have no symptoms of that, no pins and needles or numbness, it's just intense pain in the muscle and my arm is so sore to press the muscle and bone. If it is nerve problem they say with rest it will settle down, so will see how this goes, I just don't want to be taking pain relief all the time as it affects my stomach. I am so happy for you that you are off prednisone, I will try and stay on the 2mg and hope this settles but if no luck in the next week will have to increase to 5mg maybe. Thank you once again for your wishes and prayers.
