Has anyone experienced a problem with balance? I was diagnosed January 15. Even after 7 months my symptoms are changing. Some are just more intense. My balance is getting worse. I finally bought a cane but seems awkward to use it around the house. Last night I stumbled and fell into a door jam. My back has a 13" bruise on the side and sore elbow and hand. A year ago I was doing all the active things of daily living. Can anyone say if this is the PMR or the Prednisone? Has anyone had these symptoms and had improvement eventually? You are all so helpful. My experience is that doctor's in general seem to think this PMR is no big deal?
