Just been diagnosed with PMR after a painful Christmas. Started with 20mg dose for 5 days, then down to 15mg. Initially got some relief after taking steroids at 10am, but got woken with pain at 4am next morning. Got up at 6am to eat and take my second dose,which kept me going relatively pain free till 4am again. This time, I held on till breakfast at 8am. Am I being too impatient to expect pain relief so early into the medication?
I had never heard of PMR before. It certainly made for a difficult Xmas.
