Hello All - I am fairly new to this and was diagnosed on Dec. 19th 2016. I am on a prednisone protocol as per my rheumy and I am feeling better. I was experiencing a sharp pain in my left eye before starting the prednisone and before my diagnosis. It feels really dry and scratchy and sometimes my inner eye has a stabbing pain in it. Is this part of PMR that may have been starting before I knew of my condition? I use OTC eye drops (similisan) and this helps, but I'm really not sure if this is related to PMR. I will see an opthamologist soon. I see one every 2 yrs. because my mother has macular degeneration. My last check-up was good. No cataracts or signs of Macular Degeneration. I am 65 yrs. old. I feel better on the prednisone. Thank goodness. The fatigue bothered me more than the joint pain.
