Hi, have been following this site as soon as my doctor thought I had PMR. Happened just before the August Bank holiday when I couldn't turn over in bed or move my limbs much! Incredibly scary and my husband took me to a private doctor in town as soon as possible on that Saturday. This is where the doctor made the diagnosis. I had never heard of this before. I had sero negative RA for about 8 years and have been in remission for about a good 3 years. Had every scan you can think of and blood tests which didn't show up any big markers. Been on 15 mg of prednisolone, coming down to 10 and 5 alternate days this week. Today the aches and pains have come back, although not as bad as it was. Am seeing Rheumy on Saturday and will let him know where i thought it was manageable, Must admit i probably overdid it when i thought things were going so well!! Will also try and let him know that i don't want to drop in such big dosages. Anyway, have learnt so much from this site. Keep up the good work.
