Hi everyone - Diagnosed 2 days ago with PMR - 15mg a day Pred, Vitamin D and calcium. Health shop recommended Magnesium. Do I need it? I should ask my GP first in case the tablets don't go with prescribed meds.
My pain was horrific and I was crawling upstairs and not sleeping for days but still went to part time job as we do dosed up with painkillers as we dont want to give in. It is so good to be so much more moveable now after only 2 days but I am nervous about the Pred. But I expect this is normal and after all I am still in shock,
I have been swimming 3 times a week up until when this started 3 weeks ago, Now that the pain has subsided somewhat - do you think I should continue as I don't want to overdo it but I enjoy swimming?
Also I don't want to alarm the family but will have to tell them - that is where your website comes in as they can have a look at it to learn more. It's very good thanks.
Do you find PMR can flare up with stress?
Will the tiredness settle when I am more in to the Pred?
Any advice appreciated
