Hello everyone ...
I would like some advice if possible please.
I do not understand the significance nor the ideal frequency of blood tests for inflammatory markers for monitoring PMR.
I realise that we are all different and we may need blood monitoring and other tests depending upon how settled we feel and/or at what stage we are in tapering etc.
In my case ...
I had classic symptoms at the start of October 2015 and was (luckily) diagnosed four weeks later at the start of November and at that point started on 15g Prednisilone and am currently on 14g Pred. About to reduce to 13.5 tomorrow and I'm feeling ok.
Blood tests were taken at the start of November (around diagnosis and start of Pred) and then again on November 20th. Unfortunately I have no record of readings.
When do you suggest I need another blood test ... and for what reason ?
Many thanks in advance x
