I am diagnosed with atypical PMR and have severe pain in my buttocks and thighs, but only a little shoulder pain. I also have disc degeneration in my lumbar spine, and have had two successful hip replacements.
If I reduce my steroids below 15mg the pain worsens. It is bilateral and is unlike the pain I had from hip arthritis or sciatica. I do feel as if my hamstrings are tight.
Do other people experience pain in this area?
