I have been having randomly painful joints for about two months now. The pain comes as a form of an che that last anything from three seconds to at most ten seconds or so. It stated primarily in the joints , first heals, knees wrist elbows and fingers, rarely I get the pain on my shoulders and shoulder blades. I now have difficulty going up/down stairs, or carrying heavy objects. When I take a medium distant walk in town it gets realy painful on the heals especially when I finally rest,evening in particular. When I use a a set pliers/cutters say for some home jobs I used to do, the hands get tied easily. Sometime I get the pain starting at the knee and travelling down the muscle to my ankle.
I went to a doctor and got prednisolone, the pain decreases but picks up after the medication. I am now on my third prednisoline dosage within the two or so months. Though this time I got a tapered dosage, and am now on the tapering dosage.There is some improvement but it doesnot seem to be going away.
