I have had PMR since 2012 and have after weaning myself off prednisone about 9 months ago am now weaning myself off Methrotexate . I was on a very high dose 27.5 mgs for over a year . When I moved and saw a different Rheumatologist he started me on a reducing programme I now am on 10 mgs once a week. I am not in the all over pain I experienced before diagnosis but find myself becoming stiffer by the day. My legs are very stiff and if I sit in the car for long or when I get up in the morning or just sit down for a short time I cannot get my limbs moving or straighten my back for a few minutes. Once I get going I can walk fine and for quite a long distance as long as there are no steps or hills! Is this a symptom of the PMR which I was told is in remission, or what? I would like to hear from anyone who is experiencing the same.
