I’m writing for my mom who has PMR, she is 81 and was diagnosed a year ago. She started at 40mg and down to 10mg. A few weeks ago she started getting burning sudden pain on her sides that goes away quickly, but now if she lays flat the pain starts back. Also she had the flu and broke some vertebrae from coughing so hard and has been on pain medication. So we are trying to figure out if the side pain is from coming down on the prednisone or maybe the pain meds? Anyone else get pains on side of abdomen and under left rib cage?
