After spending 7 weeks at 10mg, I tapered down to 9mg via the "dsns" method, which took between 7 and 8 weeks. During that time, I was aware of increasing discomfort at the back of my thighs, but it was a very gradual process. Also, for the first time since pmr diagnosis at the beginning of the year, I was starting to feel the odd twinge in my shoulders.
Having arrived at 9mg, this discomfort became much more pronounced, so I have decided to revert to 10mg again for a while. Almost immediately, the pain was much reduced, and I was surprised at the difference just 1 mg could make.
I am wondering now about the wisdom of the Bristol report that advocated spending a year at 10mg. I did try googling for this report, but no joy. Does anyone know the link, so I could read up on it?
