I am on 15mg having been diagnosed with Pred 2 weeks ago. It has taken away the pain in my hips and right across shoulders but an area at the base of my neck about the size of a saucer has a mild ache all day.
I am sleeping OK and it doesnt keep me awake. It's now 8am and I can feel the neck starting to increase in inflammation. I normally take the Pred around now which will mean the neck will settle down around 11am.
Do you think I should take Pred earlier in the day?
Is it common in PMR to have neck pain?
Any advice about whether to apply heat to the neck in a compress or is cold best for relief?
I seem to manage for most of th day on 15mg. I am going to see GP for a review in 2 weeks.
