I was diagnosed with PMR in 2013 at the age of 46. I know this is extremely young but after ruling out other illnesses, (I was initially treated for Fibromyalgia, with no success), my doctor prescribed 20mg of Prednisolone. Within 24 hours I was fully mobile and pain free! I'd had to take time off work and returned in July for 2 days a week. I'm currently on 3 days now but still get 'wiped out' and have to rest up for 1-2 days. Unfortunately, I am in the process of reducing my Prednisolone (at 9mg at the moment) and the pains, stiffness and mobility are increasing again. Is this what I have to look forward to for the rest of my life, being tired, in pain and immobile? What can I proactively do to get rid of this?
