I'm new to PMR and have been taking prednisolone 15mg for only a week. At first the results were miraculous. The pain almost disappeared and the fevers and depression too. Now I have quite a bit of pain returning although probably only 30% of what it was before. The question that I have is this. My pain is, and always has been, much worse - say 3 times worse - on my right side than my left. I am wondering if this is average or if I have an incorrect diagnosis.
