Was diagnosed with PMR in April 2015 after 4 months of terrible pain. I was unable to get out of bed as I was in severe pain. I started on 15mgs of pred and have been taking the dose down slowly, and have been on 7 mgs for the last 2 weeks. I went to the doctor this morning and she said I was not reducing quickly enough and she wants to refer me to a rheumatologist. I live in the north east of England and would like anyone to recommend a really good rheumatologist please, as I hear many complaints. Some seem to have more knowledge and interest in PMR than others. Thank you
