Have been suffering with PMR for 4 yrs 6 mths. Been on steroids on and off though PMR returns full on when I come off. Have come off for 6 weeks now and in lots of pain. Mostly affects tops of both my legs so is agony to stand from sitting position. Have tried everything, ie special diets, gluten free, even fasting as recommended by article in Times. Have occasionally had steroid injection from my rheumy. I am reborn for about a week but sadly it returns and is such a letdown. Am currently suffering nasty bout of bronchitis which seems to accentuate the PMR. Will wait till off antibiotics and see how I go. Must try increasing anti-inflammatory foods. Anyone noticed any decrease in pain with natural anti inflams?
