  • From this study (4 years ago):

  • Polymyalgia rheumatica diagnosed 7 years ago ... Prednisone only benefit ... Blood pressure issue, atrial fibrillation, cholesterol issue, with extreme fatigue and almost chronic pain, which shifts from one location to another. Neither Savella or Lyrica effective. Multiple medications caused Barrett's Esophagus, which is being treated successfully, so far. What are the dangers of current medications? I am so sorry I have nothing positive to offer. I welcome any suggestions. Thank you
