I was diagnosed with PMR a few weeks ago. Was started at 15 mg pred and all the supplements. Had a follow up with the rheumatologist after three weeks and although I mentioned that I was not totally pain free in my shoulders and arms she thought I was doing really well and said I should reduce to 12 mg after 4 weeks as originally planned. She does not want to see me for 6 months now but I have been given a plan to reduce by 2 mg every 4 weeks. My dr will see me approx every month. Since going on to 12 mg 4 days ago I have felt just a tiny bit more pain and stiffness each morning although it improves during the day. I also seem to be sweating a lot. Do I carry on at 12, see the Dr or go back to 15.? Any advice please?
