I am disappointed, I have been diagnosed with PMR since the beginning of November, having been prescribed Predisolone 15mg the symptoms disappeared within 24 hours. I have been reducing slowly since then. Each time I reduced the dose my symptoms returned not quite so severely and cleared after 4 to 5 days later. I have read all about GCA. I was hoping never to suffer from that but this was admitted to hospital with GCA. I was taking 10mg of Pred but in Hospital this was raised to 60 mgs intreveniously. My biggest concern besides the pain was damage to my sight, I was experiencing blurred vision. I have never liked taking pills but now I'm going to rattle with all these Pred tablets and all the other pills to stop side effects. The best post I have read is skinny jonny coming off Pred, I look forward to that day and hope it's not too far away.
