Diagnosed with PMR in July 2015, I was started on 15mg of prednisone. I have used the DSNS regime to reduce to 8.5mg which I take once a day. However, before I take the pred I am always in pain - neck, back, shoulder and rib pain.
I have a general l question really - is the point of the pred to keep people painfree? Or is it better to keep reducing and have some pain?
Might it be better to split the pred and take twice a day?
Or increase it to keep the pain at bay?
I just want to get off the press asap, really.
Thank you in advance for the fab advice I know I'll get on this excellent forum😊
