Hi all, I've had PMR since last December and been on Pred for about 5 or 6 months now. Started off on 15mg and have been on 9mg for past 8/9 weeks. I still have some pain in neck, arms, backs of legs but nowhere near what it was before and I'm not overly concerned about it. BUT the last few weeks I've been suffering from fatigue (just feel knackered and washed out, cheeks on face feel a bit puffy too but they don't look it and maybe just from putting on weight - must have put on a stone since starting on Pred).
So is it likely to be the PMR causing this fatigue (I sleep OK at night but wake up feeing like I've had no sleep; I remember taking Amitriptyline some years ago and athough it helped me sleep I felt awful during the day and this reminds me of that time) or is it the Pred or a combination of the two?
