I have had Polymyalgia and GCA for 4 years. I and down to 2mg pred reducing at half a tablet each week then staying on that dose for 4 weeks. I have had a lot of body pain the last few months with cervical spondylitis added to the mix. My question is can Polymyalgia affect the hands? In the mornings my fingers are stiff and painful. The middle finger on left hand is painful at the base on movement, also three fingers of my right hand feel painful and I can't grip anything. I also have pain on the inside of my right knee. All of these get better as the day goes on. Can these all be put down to Polymyalgia?
