After several months of getting stiffer and stiffer..knees,arms,feet,hands I realised I was totally exhausted and took myself to my GP. He gave me amatryptaline but other than helping me sleep it made no difference! I then saw a rheumy who said my bloods were irregular but not outrageously high and put me on pred:20mg a day. All my peripheral aches vanished but my hips just got worse and worse!
Now he says I should start to taper off...but I can hardly walk! Sitting still is my best time...is this really pmr?
