My problem is sudden onset of severe muscle/joint aches. On Friday i could walk for miles without any pain whereas 2 days later I couldn't walk at all unaided because of severe hip/leg muscle/joint pain. Myalgia? Not sure if caused
1. over doing walking and physical acitvity with weakened muscle
2 sudden stopping of prednisolone,
3 intereaction of simvastatin with Dexamethasone..
Co-codamol doesn't seem to work much.
Essentially this is now third day I've been bed ridden, except for hobbling to chair. GP stopped simvastatin and thinks it might take a week for aches/pain to ease if statin is involved.
Anyone have any experience of onset of severe muscle aches etc or advice? Much appreciated.

April 2018, I started Abiraterone and prednisolone (5mgx2 per day) and also had 5 blasts of RT to neck. Fine, except for some aches and pains that seemed to move around the body.
After a couple of months, the PSA went down 20% (to 300), apparently v good response so early into treatment.
But two months later PSA had gone up 20%, which might suggest treatment not working. Prednisolone was stopped on Friday and instead I was given half mg Dexamethasone. Scans booked.
On day I stopped Prednisolone I walked several miles, but just two days later I couldn't walk at all and could only hobble a few paces because of severe hip and leg muscle/joint pain.
