I had my first appointment with a rheumatologist the other day at which time the diagnosis of PMR was confirmed. I also had several radiographic images taken of my knees and hips which revealed osteoarthritis. The rheumatologist feels that cortisone injections will relieve pain to the point that the dosage of Prednisone can be decreased. Has anyone undergone this mode of treatment and, if so, what was your experience/result? Thanks so much!
