Hello, recently diagnosed with PR & GCA and put on 5 mil once a day of prednisone, now put on 10 mil once a day. Not sure if I should take 5 in morning & 5 at night, Originally the Medrol pack gave me horrific side effects but the low dose of prednisone helps a little. The pain & stiffness is awfully, my groin is making walking almost impossible, all of this just came on out of nowhere. I'm female 63 very active or at least I was. I begin feeling the effects of meds late in the day, I feel best all night before bedtime &mornings are a killer for me so wondering if I should space out the meds. Also every few weeks I get this head pain, cannot comb my hair or touch the head. I'm having a hard time understanding what is happening to me & while I am under a Rheumatologists care I am not happy with him & searching for another.
