hi I am confused i was diagnosed in early March with PMR given 20mg pf pred and it worked like a miracle pill in 6 hrs.(now on 10mgs) My symptoms where stiffness mainly in my ham strings and hips which i had for over 18mts and i also limped on my right side also I have had problems with my shoulders sometimes. I have been told my knees have arthritis. However the hip stiffness and ache was the worse thing.I have been to phiso and the exercise he gave me for my hip well i still can't do it !!
I am also a little stressed at the moment as i am have a big birthday party next week (60th)
However what i am confused about is the pain in my right leg i think its coming from my hip
so is this my arthritis ? its bad in the morning and in bed. Would it help to put up the pred ?
or is that the pred is help me move better so therefor my arthritis has got worse.?
I do feel lucky that i caught the PMR in time when i read what other suffers have gone through.
