I've had pain and weakness in the muscles of my arms, shoulders and legs for the past several months. My doctor gave me two reasons, first he said I had carpal-tunnel (Based on a nerve test), but at a later time he told me that I had a strained ligament. Anyways, the pain makes it difficult to sleep, even get up and walk. My doctor then prescribed me prednisone, which was incredible as far as taking the pain away! But, after the prednisone was gone, he refused to prescribe that drug any more. So, he wrote scripts for one anti-inflammatory after another, but none of these were anywhere effective. The pain continued. He prescribed me prednisone again, which was incredible. But, now I'm running out of the prednisone and am concerned that I will not be able to tolerate the pain again. I've read about other pain conditions (Fibromyglia) which describes a trigger area (injured area) of the body which affects pain in other areas of the body. I don't believe I ahve this condition, but I think it's in the right direction to my problem. Anyways, I hope to get feedback about ideas of what I have, and prednisone and any alternatives. Thank you! Tony
