I am 78 years old and nothing I have taken will even touch the pain. I live in the southwest part of the USA. Being able to see a rheumatologist has been next to impossible. My doctor is in Internal Medicine and seems to know very little about PMR. I was started on 50mg prednisone but it hasn't helped this terrible pain. It feels like my low back and hips are in a vise or being gripped by shark. My energy level is zero. My head aches so bad but the GCA biopsy was negative. Has anyone had PMR and not been helped by trazadone? Thank you for any help you can give me.
