I have recently joined and would like to get answers to my latest problem. I was diagnosed with PMR about 2 .6months ago and I was put on 20mg and over the 2 years I got it down to 1mg BUT in MarchI started to get jaw pain when eating and it was very painful. My doctor quickly put me on 40mg Steroids and sent me for a biopsy and it came back negative. So he started reducing my dose and am now down to 12.5mg.
My problem now is that I have got low back pain and my legs feel like jelly so am not walking very much. Are my problems due to the steroids?
I am 84.
