I have been taking steroids since 2014. 23mg being the highest and 8mg being the lowest. Last September my rheumatologist said that I have to come right down bno matter what. I also am taking Methotrexate since May last year, had hip replaced then started on Humira in July. I was diagnosed with PMR , then after a while I have been diagnosed with several types or RA, the latest being psoriatic RA. My knees are just so weak and have been for about 2 years. I wear knee braces at times but they make me itch and come out in a rash. When I asked my doctor how long it would be before I recover from Steroid Myopathy, as that's what she says it is her reply was "Oh it's my understanding you will always have it" I an sure I have seen others say it took them a year to recover. Has anyone managed to get their good strong legs back?
