I have been dealing with a sore shoulder and arm pain on one side for 3 months. Was diagnosed by dr as tendonitis. But as I was seeing no improvement I went to an ortho dr this week who disagreed with what I had been previously been told. He suspects that it is PMR although he hasn't seen it much. He gave me a steroid injection without much hope that it would help just to rule things out. I am to have an mri to look for a pinched nerve this week. BUT the pain is now gone except for the injection site. Has anyone managed their PMR with injections along with the Preds? Seems possible that reductions might be smoother. Thanks all for your kind help with this baffling disease,
