Hi, Dr receptionist just phoned. ESR down to 44 from 69 last week. Told to reduce pred from 40mg to 35mg for one week then down to 30mg - repeat bloods. I am just coming out of the most horrendously painful flare up of Palindromic Rhematism. Also the left sided head pain still bad (GCA). I've tried to speak to GP but no telephone or appointments available. From the posts I've read here this seems such a drastic reduction (still waiting for tests and treatment from Rhuemy), I'm a bot loathe to reduce this much as I really could not stand another flare as bad as the last one. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Babs
