Hi. I stopped taking Prednisolone in January after gradually reducing the dose. I have been on Merhotrexate for over a year. I have been under a lot of stress lately and have a flare up of the PMR symptoms, with aches in my shoulders, neck and arms especially. Has anyone had experience of this and should I take some Prednisolone for a short time? Also does anyone know whether massage is good or bad for PMR?
