Helloo! Here is my latest dilemma...a common occurrence it is beginning to seem....... I had to increase back up to start dose of 15mgs , which I have been back on for 10 days after reducing to 14 for 3 weeks and 6 days following a nasty cold and chest which triggered all the pmr symptoms. My gp told me to stay on 15 till the end of this week. The thing is is I still don't feel that great, the chest is very much lingering and I started on doxycycline ( usual antib for C.I.) on Tuesday as was getting worse not better. I now just feel exhausted as well as still having a chesty cough. Also my shoulders ache worse first thing but still nag throughout the day and I have that pain in the groin in the mornings although that does seem to wear off during the day. The question is do I stay on 15 and if so how long for or do I reduce to 14??? I am unsure and confused. I really do value this site and so reassuring especially when my Gp not avaliable.
