Hello all you wise ones. (71 year old female 3 years of PMR) Recently got down to 3 and a half mg pred tapering very slowly from 30mg. Flair started and got good advice on here to try going up to 5mg to see if the flair could be caught. Initially it did help a bit but now 2 weeks later getting so painful over shoulders neck and arms again. I cannot bear the thought of going back up to 30mg again which I did on doctors advice the last flair I had over a year ago (dreadful side effects!).
My question is, can I try going up to 10mg for say 4/5 days to try to cure the flair and drop straight back to 5mg and stay there for a few months before trying again?
Any advice gratefully received.
