Red face muscle cramps with polymyositis

i was diagnosed in october and have been on meds ever since, im just wondering if anyone has had these horrible muscle cramps like me. my hands literally lock up and my legs awake me cramping every night, but it also happens in the day. this disease has a new issue every week, my legs were swelling really bad so they lowered my prednisone to 20mg but now my breathing has changed a bit and i cramp. i hate the hand cramps they can go up the forearm..i see my doc on wednesday i have questions......the lung issue is what i worry about. oh and this week my legs are thinner looking but my face and stomach is so puffy. how do you control the stomach bloating growing when you cant exsercise?
