I have had PMR since December. I also have a history of slight pulmonary hypertension. Over time my pulmonary arterial pressure returned to normal and pre PMR it was only slightly raised. I am now on 12.5mg prednisolone and high blood pressure medication.
Over the last 4-6 weeks I have noticed that my breathing has deteriorated a little and I am getting some crackly noises in my chest. Does anyone else experience this as a symptom of PMR? I have read that vasculitis can affect the blood vessels of the heart and lungs and wonder if this happens often.
Clearly I am a little worried about this and I am seeing my GP next week but I wanted some informed opinion before I go.
This is a wonderful forum and thanks to everyone for the invaluable support.
