I was intrigued by MrsNails post re PMR versus cancer. Most people I know round where I live are aware that I was recently diagnosed with prostate cancer, and they keep asking me how I am! Well, apart from the dreaded hot flushes associated with the hormone treatment I am on, I am absolutely fine, with no problems at all as yet.
BUT the PMR is still causing me grief some two years down the line. I have a feeling I should be upping my preds from 7.5. After nearly two years almost all the pain has gone now from the back of both thighs, and from the top of my left arm. I wish I could say the same about my right arm, where the first PMR pains started, and where it is distinctly uncomfortable to get my arm behind my back.
It is just about liveable with, but I did increase a week ago from 6.5 to 7.5 without any improvement. So, what to do now? Try 9mg, or wait a bit longer to see if it improves? Also, would I expect the place where the PMR first started to be the last to clear?
Any advice welcome please.
