I have just been told I am on a waiting list for hip replacement (6 months) 68 years old. The diagnosis for polymyalgia is recent and am now on 15 mg prednisone a day. I have peripheral neuropathy in my legs (feet) and am using pregabalin 200 mg per day for that pain.
My concern is with using the prednisone for a long period of time and hope there is something safer to use for the arthitic pain. Am looking for suggestions..thanks
