PMR diagnosed in Oct 2013. Am currently holding at 6 mg pred. With the recent return of Pacific NW cold weather, I have experienced the return of mild shoulder and arm pain.
Question: are barometric pressure and winter weather factors in PMR discomfort? This is mild pain compared to original onset of PMR, but miserable nontheless. I am reluctant to increase Pred unless there is risk that this transient pain is indicator of a flare. (Weather induced?).
I appreciate the wisdom of you who have gone before.
