Good morning to any blogger that could answer my question? Recently on the blog the question was asked about methotrexate due to there maybe being "A Polymyalgic Presentation of Rheumatoid Arthritis" . This has interested me because after 7years I am not off of the steroids(prednisolone)and I remembered that when I started out on this long PMR road the medical team at Epsom rheumy department said that I had RA but then diagnosed PMR, I took methotrexate for a couple of years but I was always very sick on it and it started to affect my liver and I couldn't take Azathiaprine either. I am confused with what the title means of a presentation of PMR within RA? Are the symptoms different? I suffer with dreadful exhaustion as well as the PMR pain so on Tuesday I want to ask my GP to get new blood tests etc done for me. Any little hope to get off of these awful steroids would be wonderful. And thank you PMR/GCA for all info on this blog. I'm so glad I was told about you by my Osteopath. I've done everything I can over the years to get down/ come off the steroids but flare ups or other hurdles seem to get in the way!! And the medical team seem to think you are'nt doing enough. So if anyone can help I'll be very grateful. Trish29
