I was diagnosed almost 4 years ago with PMR at the age of 46 and have struggled to reduce the dose. I'm still in pain and tiredness is a problem. Recently I noticed that if I was taking antibiotics I felt better. My rheumy was interested in this and has now put me on an antibiotic for 4 weeks. It has made such a difference. Has anyone else had this experience? If so how did you get on when the course was finsihed?
