I was diagnosed with PMR in Sept 2015 and put on Prednisolone and Omeprazole, Calcium and Vit D, and AA. I am at last getting a Dexascan next week to see if I really need AA, I stopped taking it last Oct after reading comments on this forum. Also stopped taking Calcium as a blood test revealed high Calcium levels, still taking Vit D and Vit K2, (for bones). I have managed to reduce slowly to 9.5mg and have just started to reduce to 9mg. Had pain in right shoulder yesterday, but after a good rub with Voltarol by my OH the pain went by tea-time. I have noticed recently that I hear a lot of crunching noises in my shoulders when turning over in bed, and a bit of pain in my collar bones. Is this typical of PMR or have I got something else brewing??
