I'm 72 and until 4 weeks ago was cycling regularly, mountain hiking, swimming and visiting a trainer weekly. I skied 7 weeks last season.
Over the last few weeks my joints and muscles have become very stiff and painful, starting with pelvic area, hips, shoulders and neck. I can't believe how I've deteriorated from a supple, fit mature bloke to the wreck I am at the moment in such a short time.
I'm pretty sure it's PMR as my wife has had it for four years. My doctor kicked me off on 20mg Pred yesterday and tomorrow will ring when the results of bloods come back.
Stories on this site are very familiar but I will need guidance in coming to terms with this and getting back to my sporting activities as soon as I can.
