I was wondering if anyone has had the experience of feeling a major PMR flare up with bloodwork coming back within normal range for inflammation markers?
I have been feeling as bad as I did at the beginning of my diagnosis 3 yrs ago. Have gotten down to 2 mg Pred for a while now, but had a bad fall on a vacation that seems to have caused my flare up. (Has this happened to anyone? Does trauma re-ignite the symptoms?)
I see my Rheumatologist tomorrow and I'm afraid he's going to tell me my bloodwork looks fine and not want to do anything. He has been giving me cortisone shots about every 3 mo. for my shoulder/neck pain, but I don't think those can continue.
Anyone have any feedback? Thank you.
