I have had pmr for three years and take prednisone 15mg on alternate days which is quite a low dose. It makes my symptoms bearable When I try increasing the prednisone It gives me stomach issues. So the low dose is where I'm at. I stopped walking and riding bike because it seemed to exacerbate or make the pain and stiffness flare up even worse. Then I developed a really sore neck, back and shoulders. I feel like not exercising really affects my mental status. So I started walking and stretching and doing easy yoga swimming three months ago. I have been pushing through the pain and stiffness because I got so stiff in my ankles and hips that I am scared of losing my level of mobility. Does anyone else have any opinions about exercising? How does exercising make you feel, does it help your symptoms?
