From this study (1 day ago):
Was put on simvastatin for 5 days, when severe pain hit. Was taken off of it immediately. Put on steriods. SED rate elevated. Prednisone helped just a little, but when weaning down, pain got worse. It has been 6 weeks off medication.
From this study (9 months ago):
Muscle pain developed after prednisone tapering complete.
From this study (2 years ago):
feel generally ill most of the time,
