I have now reduced to 5 1/2 mg a day and have been on this dose since early Dec. Had my usual feelings of low energy and not very well on some days for a couple of weeks but now have stabilised I think. I now am feeling more normal than not ! However, I am finding it more difficult to get up in the morning - as I feel lacking in energy and generally wobbly (inspite of having 8 -9 hrs sleep) also have a general sore feeling all over. Not in any way the terrible pains I had at the start of PMR. When I get going I am good most days and now go to Pilates and Yoga each week. Had a blood test last week and seeing Dr on Mon. What are your opinions please?
