I was diagnosed with PMR in Oct last year - tried to stay postive but severe pain with sciatica is bringing me down. Its OK in bed but getting up its excruciating and I just manage to get to the toilet with a walking stick, GP says its piriformis muscle causing pain in leg.
Do you think this could be connected with PMR?
I am on 10mg pred, 2 x 10mg amitripoline and paracetemol.
Is there a stonger painkiller than paracetemol that we can take with pred?
Sciatic pain severe for 9 weeks - should I ask to see a specialist/consultant if any of you have experienced this I would be grateful for your advice.
