Finally A DiagnosisI originally consulted a chiropractor because I had a pinched nerve in my neck. Next, I began to experience severe pain in both upper arms as well as both thighs. The chiropractor referred me to a neurologist who did an MRI, which indicated damage in my shoulder, disk problems, carpal tunnel problems, etc. He referred me to an orthopedist who suggested that I stop the statins which were controlling my cholesterol. Next, I consulted my internist to see what I should do to replace the statins, since I have a family history of high cholesterol. He diagnosed me problem within minutes: PMR.
Moral of the story: consult your internist first. I am now on Prednisone, not my drug of joice, but I am feeling much better.
