I had all the signs ans symptoms of PMR and GP started me on 15mgs of pred . Had to see liver specialist as liver enzymes crazy and GP worried but he said all signs of inflammation. Had scan and all ok . He was concerned about me as pain still there so gave me 40 mgs . Pain went away but still ill with weight loss , night sweats etc. Saw a rheumo within a week and he felt too young for PMR (57) and wanted me to come off steroids quickly and see what happened . Saw him a week later and he felt I had post viral arthritis ? Now 10 days off steroids feel better in myself but have stiff shoulders and knees in the morning . This is nothing like before as was not able to do anything for myself and pain was out of this world . Feel if had stayed under GP would have been on steroids still with a diagnosis of PMR . Any ideas and would the PMR flared again before now ?
