At the beginning of April I saw my doctor and although my symptoms were atypical, he was of the opinion that I may have PMR due to raised ESR which was 50. He prescribed Pred 15mg which I took for three weeks then reduced to 10mg for five weeks. Latest ESR is 29. We are now starting to reduce the Pred and he has suggested 1g reduction every 2 weeks and another blood test in a month. I am quite pleased with this as I was doubtful about the diagnosis although the symptoms I did have have improved. So we shall see how we go. I wonder if anyone else has had a doubtful PMR diagnosis.
