Hi, I have had Pmr for 17 months now and am currently on 9mg Pred. I have developed almost crippling pain in my upper back, it feels like my ribs are sliding about and I keep getting stuck. I have had a Spinal Fusion in the past, so of course I am worried about this. I think I need an xray, but my GP is really digging his heels in. He has also refused to send me for a Dexa Scan. What are your opinions please. PS, my back is so bad I have been sleeping sitting up in an armchair for a week.
Thank you Attic.
