I was diagnosed with PMR shortly after having an hernia operation .Started in the back of my legs ( hamstrings). Went to the doctors who diagnosed strained hamstrings as I cycle race and after the long rest because of the peration . Had a courseof physioto no effect. I was having difficult going upstairs ,finding it almost impossible to put my socks on in the morning .unable to raise my arms by now .finally I was told I had PMR.
Steriods 15mg wow what a relief .that was back in March 16. been trying to taper the dose down but found it hard .no real advice from docs . found this site. lots of useful info on here.
struggling at the moment as just had another hernia op. just before had real bad tooth ache. Dentist wont remove the offending tooth because I`m on AA . Have to wait 6 months .Having had a bone scan last week,told I have ostioperoris of the spine due to steriods i really need to take AA.
Atleast i have managed to get the dose down to 4.5mg thanks to the this site .
Has anyone esle had teeth problems whilst taking AA
