Hi! Just wanted to ask those of you unfortunate enough to have experienced a flare with pmr, whether you had any prior warning that a flare might be on its way, or whether it came out of the blue.
I'm now down to 9mg after 8 months. So far no problems, but in the past month or so, I have had twinges of pmr type pain in my shoulders as well as at the back of my thighs. I did not expect to be completely out of pain, and what I have experienced is definitely liveable with. What I am wondering is whether to continue to taper down, or wait on 9 mg for an extra week or two. I have been using the dead slow, nearly stop routine to get from 10 to 9, and intend following this procedure from now on, with no deduction more than 10 per cent.
