Having only been diagnosed since the beginning of the year, I am but a newcomer! I started on 30mg, and have just got down to 15mg as from last Thursday. For the first time, I can feel the beginnings of the PMR pain, but it is quite acceptable for now.
From what I read, I am luckier than most of you - probably because I am male! I have always managed to walk every day with my dog, and I go bell ringing three times a week. Also, after a three month break, I am back playing racket ball once a week; that's not that energetic, as I am 75 years old ( more social).
What I have found with any exercise is that I really have to pace myself, and plan plenty of rest. If I don't, the next day is a total write-off, and that has happened to me twice in 3 months.
Finally, some advice please. I am unsure how long I should remain at 15 mg. So far, I have reduced relatively quickly, without problems, but it realise I will need to slow down the lower I get. I am thinking of 4 weeks at 15mg, then moving to 13mg; does this seem reasonable?
