I was diagnosed 12 months ago with PMR but possibly had it up to 12 months prior, started on pred at 15mg, progressed until October following the advice given by many people on this site and was down to 7 mg. Then had a flare and went up to 15mg to contain it which I am still on. Just had a visit to the rheumy who said my blood results indicate that PMR is inactive in my body and that my symptoms over the last 4 weeks indicate that I have fibromyalgia. I have to reduce dramatically 15mg-10mg alternate days for 2 weeks etc. He is writing to my GP advising her to prescribe a different drug regime . Thank you for listening, hope you have a Happy Christmas and has anybody got any comments.
