Recently diagnosed with PMR by my GP. Have continuous shoulder/neck aches, occasional leg aches and suffer from severe night sweats. GP suggests taking paracetamol tablets "when symptoms are bad" and prescribed paracetamol cream for my neck. Discussed steroids but GP says that the possible side effects outweigh any benefit they might bring unless my symptoms get worse. Is this the normal medical response?
