I Have had PMR now for about 15 months and am on prednisone for it. I noticed about 2 months ago that I couldn't sing like I used to. I had lost my range. I now am getting quite hoarse. It is progressively worsening. Does anyone know of a cure for this? Would going back up on the dose of prednisone help? I am looking for an ENT who has experience with rheumatologic disorders, such as PMR.
Hi - I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in 2013 (mastectomy, lymph node clearance, chemo, radiotherapy, tamoxifen for 2 years, Letrozole for 3 months). when I started Letrozole, I had a DEXA scan to check my bones and they were found to be low density (especially my spine) and I was diagnosed with Osteopenia. I've experienced aching joints (hobbling around, especially when getting up from sitting down in a chair for a period of time) and recently went on holiday to Barcelona (yay!) and decided I'd give my bones a holiday too and take some Naproxen. I've taken it before (actually, I prefer Voltarol tablets, but they've been taken off shelves for 'heart related problems') but when the aches and pains went away, I was nearly back to my old self. I walked for miles, leaped into pools, and my arms and legs really toned up. It was fabulous. Now that I'm back, I've checked how long I can take Naproxen for (forever?!?!) Apparently it can cause Osteopenia - seeing as though I've already got that - will it make it worse and push me into osteoporosis? Any thoughts, advice would be appreciated!

I am 76 years, male and have suffered from PMR for over 10 years now using Prednisone to suppress the symptoms. I have had 2 periods of less than 6 months each without Prednisone but due to 'flare ups' after, have been prescribed Pred. again. I have tried Viagra etc for E.D. which worked ...
My skin has discoloured in the last six months and yesterday I went to Amit Pande who is a Dermatalogist and Professor at UT Southwestern and he was the first to diagnose that it might be the Naproxen that causes it.
