My rheumy had me go for a nerve conduction test because I was telling him I had what felt like "vibrations" in my hands when at rest. Results were that I have compression in my wrists. Ironically, that is what hurts me in the morning the most , and tender throughout the day. I was diagnosed with PMR in April 2015, started at 20 mg, got down to 7.5 mg in September with no ill effects. Travelled to Southeast Asia in October and because of increased activity and time changes, I had to up my pred to 10mg. Am now on 9 mg and will start to decrease by .5 every month. Has anyone had this wrist problem? Dr said to wear wrist splints at bedtime and did not seem too concerned. Is it the PMR or pred side effects?
