I am 59 years old and was diagnosed with PMR 4 1/2 years ago. My pain started in my lower legs. After biopsies and other tests, the Dr.s only came up with the PMR conclusion. I could barely function due to the pain! Even rolling over in bed was extremely painful. I was prescribed 20 mg of prednisone and to taper off. I taper off and when I get down to 5 mg. it flares up again. I also suffer with arthritis which I had to have both knees replaced- Dec. 2015 & Feb. 2016. I feel I have recovered well from the surgeries, although I occasionally get a nerve spasm that runs up my chin bone which almost puts me down to the floor. I also suffer with: IBS which is very irritating/embarrassing when you don't have control 2) severe fatigue (I also use a C-Pap machine at night) during the day. 3) depression (which I take meds for too) 4) eye pain (not a headache- just the eye). I know it sounds like I am a hypochondriac, but I do have all these symptoms I go to the Dr. every month and see a Neurologist. All they tell me is that it will eventually go away, take the Prednisone and keep up what I'm doing.. Anybody else share these symptoms too?
