Hello, I have had this since mid March. However my pains started in the thighs, then hips, groin and knees and it was only after this that I got the pains in my shoulders and arms. So I was wondering if anybody else's pains started "back to front"?? Also, I now have very stiff and possibly swollen knees, so is this still part of PMR does anybody know?? Thank you to anyone who replies.
