Hi all, I was just diagnosed with PMR, I'd had pain and stiffness in my shoulders, hips and wrist and felt fluey and exhausted. I'd had problems moving, dressing showering etc and was struggling to go to work. I was referred to the rheumatology dept and had a Depo-Medrone injection on Wed 18th, I had no change until this morning, when I woke the pain and stiffness were greatly reduced and I'm very happy with results. How long can I expect this relief to last and will these injections alone control my symptoms?
