21/2 yrs. of PMR/GCA from 60mg. of Prednisone down to 1 mg. at present, I’ve had all the side effects come and go. Now with this last month, I developed diverticulitis, slowly receding and bilateral leg pain which is progressing. It started in the knees , but now covers the back of my legs from hip to foot! I can’t stand from a seated position without aids and collapse into a seated position.
My RA says it’s not from GCA not having seen me. I know GCA is a form of vasculitis, could my leg pains ( only back of my legs) be claidication and what should I be doing to improve?
