I am very new to PMR! Had blood results last week and it was suspected I have PMR. Have suffered from groin and shoulder pain for a few months which I assumed weren't linked. I suffer from hip misalignment issues so assumes that this was linked to the groin pain. The onset of shoulder pain was a bit random though as I have never had any pain in my shoulders. It is only one shoulder that is the problem though. I had quite a bit of relief the first day I took Prednisone and managed to reduce the Naproxen. I am still in quite a bit of pain first thing in the morning though. I am so glad I have found this site as I had never even heard of PMR before last Friday. I'm not keen on taking steroids but I am at the end of my tether with the pain so will try anything. Does anyone else take Naproxen alongside the Prednisone. I am currently on 15mg of Prednisone and am getting reviewed this week with the GP. How long does it usually take before Prednisone takes full effect as I had relief the first afternoon but for the last two days still feel pretty stiff and achy but not as bad as before I started taking them. Any replies would be very welcome
