I have had PMR for 3 years and taking Pred, I recently had a second DEXA scan and I have been advised by my GP that my spine and hips have gone from -2.5 to -2.6 and he wants to refer me to a Rheumy. I have a Barretts Oesaphagus and history of Massive Pulmonary Emboli, the last one being nearly fatal ! Apparently that means he cannot prescribe number one or number two on the list of drugs and so I need to see a Consultant. I live in the UK is anyone aware of a suitable drug that I could possibly take that doesn't have horrific side effects that I could discuss with the Consultant ? Many thanks
