Before I see my GP I would like the opinion of the very clever and supportive people on this site. I was diagnosed 2 and a half years ago with PMR and successfully reduced prednisolone to 3.5mg until July when I increased to 4.5 after feeling symptoms starting to return. That seemed to sort the problem until about a month ago when my right hip started to hurt when I walked. It has gradually got worse and now I am hobbling. It's only slightly uncomfortable at night and when resting. My gut feeling is that it's not PMR. I'm hoping it's not osteo arthritis. I'm 57 and don't have any other health problems.
