Hello All - I was recently diagnosed with PMR by a rheumatologist and was put on 20 mgs. daily of prednisone. I am feeling much better and most of my awful fatigue is diminished thanks to the medication. I was also recently diagnosed with anemia by my PCP. My latest numbers for iron is 9.4. Six months ago I was at >12. I seem to be dropping .2 pts. every 2-3 weeks or so. I don't have any internal bleeding that I can see, and I go for a colonoscopy every 3 yrs. I am due for one the end of next year. I have already received my protocol for weaning down on the prednisone and this should take me to the end of Oct. 2017. I thought I had read about others who mentioned anemia on this site too. My PCP doesn't seem too concerned about it for now, and in fact I will do blood work for him again on Jan 9th 2017. But my main complaint before I was diagnosed with PMR was extreme fatigue, and although the prednisone has taken care of that pretty much, I am getting more fatigued due to the drop in my iron. Any thoughts??
