Yes, absolutely normal. If you haven't got brain fog due to the autoimmune part of PMR then pred is likely to do it instead - or even both. Without units for your CRP I can't assess whether it is high or not - but I suspect it probably is.

You really do need to consider whether you should be working at present - at least some time off sick will speed up the initial recovery. It won't cure the PMR but it will help get it under control.

Thank you for your quick reply being able to ask questions really helps


Might be worth taking a look at site for a booklet called 'Living with PMR & GCA' not expensive.
