This is only my second post and as I try to wrap my head around just what PMR is going to mean to me I have come to the term that it will be a dance. I don't want to have a battle mindset as I feel I will be defeated at every turn! So for now I will dance and let my PMR take the lead. With that being said here are a few questions.
My Dr. says stay on current dose of 13 until I am doing well for several weeks and then I can cut down by 1. From what I read here that is too fast and possibly too much. Do well for 1 month and cut down by .5?
But what does doing well look like? I don't have fatigue but my rib cage is irritated and I take Arthritis Strength Acetaminophen at the maximum dose each day.
I am also going to physical therapy for pain in my shoulders from very tight muscles along side my neck which Dr. said was from stress and not PMR. This all gets to be very confusing. So I am doing exercises which are helping.
So bottom line. How do we know when to lower?
Thank you all for the kind help and enjoy the Spring!
