I weaned off of prednisone 2 months ago after being on it for 7 months. Since then I have had 3 episodes of really bad body pain. One in my left arm which started around the elbow and radiated up and down from shoulder to wrist. Then my upper body starting in upper back moving to either side of rib cage and then around front of rob cage. Each time I tried to take a deep breath it was cut off from the pain. Went to er they did Ct scan to check for blood clot and found nothing. Asked dr if she thought it was my copd and she said no that seems fine and in control. Then it too just seemed to go away. Now this week it's in my right arm like it was in the left. No one seems to know what it is and when I had the first two incidents checked they just said skeletal muscular. Can anyone tell me what that really means????? Besides all the other problems with this disease I really don't need this pain too. I'm afraid to exercise anymore because of these painful occurrences. I was really good with my exercising too.
Oh well I've gone on enough just wondering if anyone else has experienced this.
