I've got to post how I'm feeling because I'm finding it hard to cope. After the rheumatologist telling me the GP was wrong about my PMR diagnosis as I am only 42, I am now down to 10mg prednisalone and I feel anxious, panic stricken, tearful and my pain is getting worse. My hands are starting to swell again and my shoulders and hips are painful. I'm terrified I'm dying and how my son would cope as I am a lone parent. I feel shaky and unwell. I have been told to stay on 10mg for the next 2 weeks then go to 5 mg then stop, so she can see what happens and try me on other medication. I think I just need a bit of reassurance really to get me over this difficult patch. Sorry to write so much but I don't know where else to turn. Anyway I hope you are all doing well on here.
