Hi. I have PMR and taking 15mg Prednisione. Tried reducing to 10mg and failed so back to 15mg and going to start reducing by 1mg a month in Jan. Only pain now is top of arms and quite bad in one hip but nowhere near from first diagnosis. I am also taking 10mg Amitriptyline to help me sleep. My major problem is the hot sweats that creep up suddenly and the wonderful "moon face" that lights up like a beacon. Bad enough feeling ugly without it being highlighted. I would just like to ask does anyone else suffer from the hot flashes and help to deal with it.
