Diagnosed pmr officially 3yrs,previously provisionally 2yrs.Was on pred till june2015. but then taken off pred. Dec. 2015 had bad flare-up,lost 2 stone in 3 weeks,put back on 20mgs pred.This has now tapered to 7mg. Tomorrow is my 4th infusion or rituximab,when would I expect to come of pred. I am 75yrs old and in Paisley the medical people don't seem to like old codgers to be on pred. too long.Still the best site for information for pmr. problems. Thank you, John.
