I have been reading a lot in the last couple of days about ain and PMR. I was diagnosed with GCA in September this year and started off on 60mgs Pred and am down at the moment to 35 mgs. In the last 3 weeks or so my lower back, aroubd the pelvic area has got morw and more painful and now if I stand for more than a few minutes is excruciatingly painful. The interesting thing is that more or les as soon as I sit down, the pain goes away. Painkillers or gell doesn't seem to help. My Rheumy sent me for Xrays on my lower back yesterday, but the results will not be in until after Christmas. Do you think this may be due to PMR . I would have thought that on 35mgs I would not have had this much pain.
Hope you all have a lovely Christmas.
