Has anyone else had bad knee pains that started with their PMR diagnosis? Rheumatologist say that knee pain does not go along with PMR but it seems that so many of us have knee pains. X-Rays showed no abnormalities in my knees, so I am confused about whether this is PMR related or not? Prednisone does not seem to help unless I am on a higher dose (I am currently taking 8 mgs). Also, I have muscle pain in the back of my upper legs. It feels like strained muscles and I've done nothing to strain these muscles. Anyone else experiencing the knee pain or this type of muscle pain?
