I was first diagnosed with PMR in September 2014 . I have been an avid reader of this site since then and have learnt so much from everyone. This has been my worst time reducing from 8mg to 7.5mg the withdrawal Symptoms have been awful. I have had a painful foot that caused me to limp. Groin pain, sensitive teeth, a numb tongue, burning sensations in my arms and legs, and fatigue I took to my bed and slept I wasn't sure whether to go back to 8mg but decided to stick it out as I understood that my own body has to start reusing its own adrenalin glands at this level. today was the first good day I have had for ages it feels so good so glad I have stuck at it thankfully I have an understanding husband. I just wanted to thank the professionals on this site for all their expertise. I have followed there slow reduce method with success and consider myself lucky that I am not as bad as some people. But I have always been active and miss being able to do the things I love. I will stay on 7.5mg for a couple of months before I start any further reductions
