Please can anyone tell me if this could be PMR related or not? One day in August I bent over to pick something up off the floor and felt an almost tearing pain in my hip/buttock area. It was agony but went after a few days and I have only had slight twinges since.
On Friday I went to stand up and couldn't. I had no strength at all in my leg and the pain in my hip was like bone on bone. It took a long time to stand and the pain made me yell out. I could hardly walk. This has gone on all weekend but I have found that total rest helps, so after resting yesterday it is slightly better today, but not right. The effort of sitting or standing is what causes the most pain.
I have PMR and GCA and am currently on 13mg, my last reduction was just over a week ago from 14mg.
Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you.
