Does anyone else have this, or know any bodybuilder who does? I’m having a hard time finding information and guidance on how to go about lifting, how test/steroids might hurt/help this and basically every other aspect of bodybuilding that might impact the disease. Any help or information is greatly appreciated.
I was diagnosed with this based on bloodwork and muscle symptoms. It seems like a strange diagnosis since I’m only 42, and don’t have the classic strong pain in my shoulders, hips, legs, etc. I do have excess muscle soreness, muscle achyness, difficulty recovering from physical activity, nausea/poor appetite, depression and ESR and C-reactive protein in the 70s indicating high inflammation, but with rh factor normal. I’ve been on prednisone for a few weeks, and all those symptoms cleared up for a short time, but now I’m having problems again.
