I have been on predisone 2 1/2 years. I am currently on 2 mg every other day. I am presently having severe low back pain and a little shoulder pain. The shoulder pain goes away after I am up in the morning after a few minutes. I am not sure if low back pain is from the pmr. I have a drs. Appointment Thursday of the this week for annual check up but this is not my Rhuemy. I was thinking I should raise my pred to see if the pain goes away. Ibrophen really helps but I don't liketo take that while taking Pred. Should I raise the pred. or wait to seethe doctor. I had a herniated disk 8 years ago. Is low back pain symptoms of pmr? My sedimentation rate was 23 two weeks ago and CRP 2.2.
