PMR: Anyone have Stress Fractures while on prednisone?
Anyone have any experience about having stress fractures while on prednisone? I was diagnosed with PMR almost 2 years ago. Started on 15 mgs. prednisone – had tapered down to 2 1/2 mgs of prednisone and boom – had a major flare that also seemed to involve my upper back. Went to rheumatologist today who upped my steroids back to 8 and is sending me for back xrays, mri and bone density scan. She is thinking that I have a stress fracture in T4 of my spine. Anyone have any experience with this? Thanks!
