Sorry for another post -
Diagnosed with PMR/GCA last June, I have had 3 flares and each time my dose has been increased, resolved the temple pain and most of body pain. However, my last flare over a month ago, (stress related - I am now off work), the increase for a week settled the inflammation - temple pain and the usual stiffness. However, I am definitely developing further pain, but in different areas, both knees, ankles, elbows, lower back, back of neck and intermittent collar bone discomfort. (Back, knees and neck being almost constant) My fatigue is worse and I am more miserable. These pains do ease with paracetamol, although not completely, which I know is not the usual with PMR, a friend who has fibromyalgia says this is where her pain is located - could I have developed a secondary autoimmune condition or is this further PMR?
Any advice or experience on this would be greatly appreciated. I have just reduced to 13.5 mgs, almost back down to my lowest dose of 13mgs.
Many thanks as always.
