Diagnosed with PMR in February taking 22 mgs of Pred now hoping to reduce at month's end. I see the Dr next week. I am starting to see that when I am under any kind of stress I will get a warning sign in that my ribs will become sore. Then I will slow down and rest and know that it is time to change activities. My ribs were very inflamed last night but I think that is due to my strained rotater cuff and I had done too much lifting. It feels like I am being hugged, not terrifically painful but irritated feeling. So my question is does this mean that my inflammation is still not under control and I do not think of reducing at this time/ or by month's end or do I start a reduction plan watching for the warning signs of having overdone? Not sure how much discomfort to put up with. Thanks as always for all the suggestions and life experience shared here. : )
