Since diagnosis in oct. 2014 I have had symptoms only in my legs. I say 'only' but at the onset I was crippled by the pain and showing all the symptoms of pmr including the miraculous effect of prednisolone at 15 mg. After getting down to 7mg I had a major flare in oct 2015 (after a cold) and GP put me back to 15mgs, stayed there for 8 weeks.I was referred to the rheumy who wants me off pred ASAP and seems to be doubting the original diagnoses as it is rare to have only legs involved in pmr. She is threatening me with the use of methotrixate. This has really upset me as I am afraid she will bring me off pred faster than I can go( I am very sensitive to pred withdrawal). Does anyone out there have this wretched illness only in the legs? I have read on this forum that some people have numbness in their feet, which I have...could this be due to the pred?
