Please can anyone advise me if a flare up of PMR can include serious balance problems and general all over shakiness. I have been to my GP and he advised me he doesn't think its PMR but something else and has referred me to a neurologist. I do have back pain (sacroiliac joint dysfunction diagnosed by my chiropractor) but have no shoulder/arm muscle pains as one would normally expect from PMR. I am on 10mg of prednisolone having reduced from 15 over the last 5 weeks. This 15mg was taken for just a week to address what my doctor thought was a flare up at that time. I am tempted to try and up the Pred to 20mg for a while as when I was first diagnosed with PMR in August 2012 just to see if I get any respite from this debilitating balance problem. My thinking is that if there is some improvement it will verify that it is a flare up. Any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated.
