I have had a really easy ride so far with PMR. Diagnosed in mid January. Put on 20mg prednisolone with fantastic affect on pain within 8 hours or so. Have sometimes been fatigued since then, but nothing too much. Though I have tried to pace myself...certainly not working as hard as I used to, and much less sport. About 3 weeks ago had reduced to 10mg (20mg, 15mg, 12.5mg, 11mg, 10mg,) all without any problem. Big party for my disabled daughter 11 days ago which wiped me out. Rested rested rested and still felt dreadfully tired for another week. No pain apart from slight stiffness in neck in the mornings. So I put myself back up to 11mg 4 days ago. No difference. I have had no bloods taken since diagnosis. Would it be worth requesting them? Any suggestions, apart from the obvious one of keeping on resting?
