Hello @vfaye, I've had 2 occurrences of PMR and am thankful that it is now in remission. I did take a statin years before I developed the PMR but I'm not sure that caused mine. I do sort of think the statins had something to do with my developing small fiber peripheral neuropathy. I no longer take statins. Prednisone was the magic pill for relieving the pain and stiffness symptoms for my PMR. There is another discussion where your post will receive more visibility if you post your question.
