Help! I am 80 with PMR reducing down at 1mg in 7-8 wks, now at 10mg as I went into an operation for Spinal Stenosis- vertebrae 4/5 .Successful 100% for 7 days- w/e gradually returning but not the symptoms, some Pain 'tired, languid , thick feeling in head .had to reduce the walking -not extreme ,saw Doctor on the Wed and a general testing- nothing but reflex's in left leg weak but also in rht less. Seeing the Surgeon on Wed.12th.BUT today SUN. had difficulty in getting out of Bed also weak generally. Feel I have got to try something( been a faithfull reader/member for a couple of years) thought it might be the body calling out for Pred ,symptoms similar to reduction of PMR I thought so I have taken the plunge and added 2mg-making 12/day. if it works Ok -if not well see what the Surgeon says. Any comments especially from the learned Ladies, more than Welcome. John
