I m writing from Chennai, india . I am 78 years old. Last year I had low grade fever and high crp at around April. After a battery of tests it was concluded that it is an inflammatory disease and 4 mg twice a day was prescribed. After 2 weeks it was reduced to 4 mg once a day after crp came down to 15. But after that I had severe hip and groin pain for which I told paracetamol for 2 weeks and my crp was 55. After increase to 4 mg steroid twice again the crp came down to 2 and the pain was gone..since then I have not been having any pain but my crp karpa rising slowly if I reduce to 2mg a day. Is this pmr? Here no one has given a name to my disease
It is possible but it doesn't sound typical symptoms and it is a very rare disorder in Asian populations - unless maybe you have a northern European heritage in your family.
I think you need to speak to your doctor about some investigations into the exact cause of the hip and groin pain since that is obviously what you are most aware of.
