My plan was to reduced from 20mg to 17.5 two days ago, but I decided to delay it. A bit of history for those who have not read my previous post. Diagnosed with PMR 22 days ago, put on 50mg for 7 days and been on 20mg since. I've been drinking night time tea and sleeping better, but my problem is in the morning. It takes me 4 to 5 hours before I can start moving. I have pain in my shoulders, upper arms, and really bad in my thighs. Just a month ago I used to look forward getting up in the morning to go fishing, now I just hate it cause I know what I have to deal with. Is it possible I need to be on a higher dose to settle this down? Not seeing my doctor till September 22, but I will ask him then.
Thanks for reading,
