Hi - I was diagnosed almost 8 months ago with PMR & TA - Preds 40 mgs prescribed, dropped to 30 after 2 weeks then 25 a month later then 20 - had a flare, stress or too fast, back up to 30 etc. now slowly back down to 17.5 but since the flare that made me go back up, I have increasingly felt ill. Intermittent aching, neck, shoulders etc and stiffness (Rheumy not worried as long as head pain does not return). Due to go down to 15 mgs, but so very tired, fatigue a real issue, feeling intermittent nausea with hot sweats through out the day and really bad at night, little sleep, concentration is really poor. Tummy not gooe either.
Should I still feel so poorly - albeit in a different way ??
