Hi All. I've had pmr for three or more years, and gca for a year. My dilemma is I don't have a clue what on earth is going on with me at the moment. By April this year I had reduced prednisolone down to 20mg and then had four gca flare ups in six weeks. Each time being put up to 60mg pred to save my sight. I saw rheumatology on Wed who wants me to reduce by 5mg every week. My problem is that I am nigh on immobile and getting worse by the day. Can anyone shed any light on this? Is it the illness or steroids? I have a very positive attitude but this is so debilitating I am beginning to wonder if I am poorly with something else. ( I have lots of other conditions. ). Thanks
