Its a long time since i have written, i was dx with possible PMR a year ago then saw Rheumatologist said no its frozen shoulder . I managed to get off the Pred in March this year. Shoulders are a lot better after having cold laser therapy but now i have terrible stiffness in hips and legs , I was told this was possibly side effects from the steroids. Saw Rhuemy again in May and he suggested I start taking Pred again !! it took me 8 months to get off the Pred now he wants me back on it ! i decide to not take them and just continue with laser light and persevere with pain in legs. I am now taking CBD for the pain and it is helping, but in mornings it is really bad ...my legs just feel like lead weights and climbing stairs or even coming down them is a mamoth task .....maybe it is PMR ??
