In January one Doctor thought I might have PMR after at least 6 weeks of symptoms, he sent me for blood tests it was his last day in town. After 2 weeks I was I pain but didn't have a doctor so went to outpatients, the Dr. did more blood tests, ex-rays and put me on three days of 50 mg of predisone. Instant relieve but as soon as I was finished my PMR was right back. Waited another 3 weeks and saw my new Dr. he agreed with the other two I had PMR and put me on 30 mg. predisone for a week then tapering the next, then three weeks of neproxen which did nothing but upset the stomach and the PMR came right back. Back to the Dr. he reluctantly gave me 10 mg. predisone for 5 weeks saying I would gain tons of weight. After two weeks my sister was hospitalized and after a 7 day bedside vigil she passed away. Now with two funerals and a houseful behind me, I have a chest and head cold and have been blowing my nose regularly. Both last night and night before I woke up at 4 am with a bleeding nose quite severe. My question is has anyone else had this happen, I have never had a nose bleed in my 64 years.
