I was bitten by deere tick early June. Coincidentally had a physical scheduled with my internest June 12. Exam went great. Blood work excellent. Started feeling hip and shoulder stiffness some mornings midJuly. Noticed it was worse after a workout the previous day. September 2 went back to internest. Blood tests confirmed likely pmr . Lymes inconclusive. Doc has me dosing 30mg prednisone every other day. Not through a week of this but been a bit difficult. also taking doxycycline for lymes . Wondering about a possible tick connection and any experience with the every other day dose regiment? Thanks and good health to us all.
