Pleased to say my GP follows the same line as that advised by you. Has kept me on 30mg for PMR, and pain is now receding. ESR down from 1.97 to 1.68, and CRP from 39 to less than3. Indicates to me the steroids are reducing the inflammation. Can still feel pain late at night and in morning, but it is definitely much better. Hope to be able to reduce to 25mg in about 10 days time.
Really appreciate this forum.
