I have pmr and have gradually reduced prednisalone down to 5mg daily and was feeling great then in October I found out my husband of 35 years was having an affair, I have been under a huge amount of stress and still am and I have been getting pain in my shoulders again, not as severe as when I was first diagnosed but pretty bad. Can anyone tell me if stress can cause a flare up or is it just coincidence? I increased the prednisalone to 7mg which seems to have helped. When should I try and reduce again? If it is stress related presumably when he is out of my life!
