I use to have painful cramps before diagnosis of PMR but these seem to be worst since taking the preds. Especially my hands. Reduced tabs from 10mgs to 9mgs last week and upper arms beginning to stiffen and pain me slightly. More pain than usual in hips this week but cramps still bad. Next week I'm suppose to go down to 8mgs. Next visit with Rheumy is November, and my GP is really good.
