Hi. I was diagnosed with PMR in July. I started on 15 mg of predinisolone then and had 2 failed attempts at tapering as I went too fast. I then tapered much more slowly and am still on 12.5 mg. I have major issues with pain in my neck,shoulders and back being the worst. I have put on a lot of weight with pred. I have the classic moon face and the hump. Pred.has also adversely affected my diabetes. So I'm in a dilemma.
Has anyone used a Tens machine to help with PMR pain? I'm desperate . It's like red hot needles in my back.. I need to reduce my pred.but can't handle the pain.
