I am new to the forum having only recently discovered its existence, I was diagnosed with PMR in May 2011. Reduced preds from 30mg to 10 but unable to go below. Now on steroid sparing drug Leflunomide prescribed by Rheumy in effort to reduce CRP and therefore reduce preds. After taking for 3 months CRP normal, but stiffness and particularly pain in the calves on walking has remained.
Would be interested if anyone has had similar experiences?
Can PMR cause acute pain in the calf?
Has anyone be prescribed Leflunomide to aid in PMR?
