I'm undiagnosed and not on any meds at the moment. My GP initially suspected PMR as I had bilateral pain and stiffness and a raised ESR, but the pain and stiffness slowly improved over a couple of months and my ESR dropped back to "normal" (though I don't actually know what "normal" was for me prior to this!) so she decided to refer me.
I'm seeing a Rheumy next month and was tempted to cancel the appointment as I was feeling so much better, but in the past 2 weeks I've developed new stiffness in my left hip and a burning/tingling pain across the top of my back/across my shoulder blades that gets significantly worse as the day wears on. It's not noticeable in the morning but starts mid afternoon-ish.
Can this happen with PMR, or does it sound like something else? (I'm due to have a repeat blood test for CRP and ESR at the start of November so can't say what my levels are at the moment.)
Thanks in advance for any contributions!
