I was diagnosed with PMR about a year ago after blood test it was previously classed as Fibromyalgia for about 4 years until correct diagnosis. I have heart and lung failure due to high dose chemotherapy 23 years ago for Non Hodgkins Lymphoma - I am a healthy specimen. My GP and various consultants have confirmed my heart and lung damage is due to PRD (post Radiation Damage) and now they believe that th radiation is attacking my immune system. I was put on a very high dose of preds (40mg) which I have gradually reduced over a period of time, currently on 5 mg which has stabilised me. Has anyone else out there been through similar to me and does anyone also treat their symptoms with alternative medicine as my drugs cupboard is starting to bulge a little. Thanks in advance for any advice.
