I have been battling PMR for three years now. I went undiagnosed for about 8 months, then did a two year treatment of prednisone. Initially, the prednisone was helpful but its effectiveness reduced as I tapered the dose. I am now on methotrexate and off the prednisone. I am also trying accupuncture. Nothing seems to help. I would love to hear from others who are fighting this battle, especially if they have found something that works for them!
