Hi All , is this normal my GP was scratching his head with a smile on his face when I walked in his surgery this morning. My last 3 blood tests ESR have been 26,28,30 a small climb each time. 2weeks on 20mg of Pred and my ESR is 10 and my CRP is 1. I have no pain (still got the full headache. Also I have eaten nothing but an anti inflammatory diet since he said I have PMR. Is it normal for the Pred to get your bloods back to normal this fast , or have I been miss diagnosed ? All the symptoms I currently have feel like Pred symptoms . My GP is still convinced I have PMR but has referred me to a Rhematoligist for there opinion . Any thoughts or experiences of this folks.
