Hello everybody. I was diagnosed with PMR in May and started on 15mg pred. My symptoms quickly disappeared and 3 weeks later I reduced to 12.5mg. 2 weeks after that I started to get some shoulder pain and stiffness which continued so my GP put me back up to 15mg. I’ve been on 15mg for a week now. The symptoms are getting worse and I’m now starting to feel unwell. Not the debilitating symptoms I had before being diagnosed, but I’m worried that the 15mg dose isn’t working like it did at first. Is this normal or could there be some other condition involved? I’d welcome any advice. I hope to see my GP this Monday.
Thanks for this forum. It’s a real support.
