I have been on my PMR nightmare for 4 years and a half years. Since January I felt great and after normal blood test at 2mg and 1mg I finally tapered off completely and joked with my GP that I wouldn't see her for another 10 years. I have slimmed down to my normal weight and my fat face has gone. I turned 60 in March and was so happy telling everyone my PMR had gone. BUT NO. It is rearing it's ugly head again. A week later I started getting the symptons. I took 2mg. the next day 3mg and I can feel it getting worse. hence me sitting here at 4 am writing this. What should I do now? I can't bear the thought of having to go through all this again.
