This is my first time on the forum but I have been following it since being dx with PMR October 2014. Starting at 15mg I followed the usual stony path down to 7mg whereupon it all flared up again so back to 13. I used the very very slow method to get down to 10mg But now I have had an almighty flare and Dr. put me back to 15mg. Even this is not holding the PMR back as pain and fatigue etc is almost back to pre-pred days. Now I don't know whether to grin and bear it or put myself up to 16mg or17mg to control symptoms, which I am reluctant to do as it is difficult to get down again. Any advice would be hugely welcome. I join in all the praise for this forum and am so thankful for it.
