Hi, I was diagnosed with PMR last Tuesday following weeks of excrutiating pain in my left arm, my back and hips. I am 52 years old and am currently on sick leave as I struggle to get out of bed, dress myself and drive. I have started on 20mg prednisone and will see the consultant again in 4 weeks. So as this is the fourth day on steroids I was hoping for an improvement as so many people seem to report. My arm is worse and I feel little improvement in back pain and hips. Am I expecting results too soon?
Your thoughts would be very welcome.
