Diagnosed with PMR 2 1/2 years ago. How do I manage the extreme pain?

Posted by sallyann @sallyann, May 10, 2016

I was diagnosed with PMR 2 1/2 years ago. Steroids didn’t help now I’m on Methotrexate for a month. My EMG today was negative. I take Tramodsl, Motrin, and Tylenol to deal w the extreme pain. What do I do next? I’m 54 now.

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Polymyalgia Rheumatica (PMR) group.


Mine began 10 days after the J and J jab for COVID.

I also believe The COVID 19 shot caused my PMR – started with 20 MG of Prednisone in July, now down to 5 Mg – I refuse to take the Covid booster.
