I was diagnosed with PMR in July of 2017. I started on 15 mg of Pred and am now on 3. My reducing of Pred has gone very well, with very little pain. But now, at this low dosage, I am experiencing stiffness and pain in my upper back and neck, usually first thing in the morning. Is this because my pred at this point is too low, or is it that Pred has been masking other arthritic pains that I may have had, but higher doses covered it? I am 68. My arms hurt today as well, but then I was shoveling snow yesterday! I don't want to take any more pred than necessary. How it does one distinguish PMR pain from aging aches and pains?
