Hi has anyone else read this book ? It only seems to be in kindle form which I downloaded from Amazon.. It's excellent .. Kate Gilberts book on PMR/ GCA is my favourite book and I have it near me all the time but this book by Bren Ryan is excellent .. It was just like reading about myself and my PMR journey and I need to tell some of my Family and Friends to download it and then they might understand me and what I am going through a bit better . The Author is a PMR sufferer and I am wondering how they are getting on since writing the book .I have had nearly 11 years on this PMR road and this is a New Year with another new beginning ..I am back on Methotrexate to try to reduce on the steroid as my body is very stubborn and over the years I have had lots of hurdles ie Flare ups for different reasons , at the moment I am stuck on 14.05 mg steroid but I was up as high as 17mg before Christmas due to a fall .I put the fall down to starting the Methotrexate injections and it was a steroid reduction day. Luckily I have a very kind and caring Rheumatologist and I had a more positive meeting with him yesterday . We are going to continue on the Methotrexate injections but he has reduced the dose slightly because of the muzzy heads and giddiness .. I was on Methotrexate before orally but I had to come off of it because it effected my liver. The 1st positive note for the New Year was I hadn't put on any weight which is good seeing as we have had Christmas and lots of Birthdays. So I will continue to fight this horrible condition and Thank You to everyone on this Forum who gives us fellow sufferers lots of advice and to the Authors of these books which we can read and get comfort from ..best wishes. trish 29
