I am finding the sun every afternoon has certainly helped cheer me up about slowness of dealing with recovery from PMR. In November the advanced practise nurse at my local surgery in UK supported me in going back to 15mg pred daily to combat the severe joint pains that had flared up again when I had reduced to 12.5mg as recommended by the rheumatologist, But I have been on this dosage since Oct. so now I am trying this week 15mg one day and 12.5mg alternate days. So far this week it has worked well and am not suffering any great pains. Just had call from the local hospital in Torrevieja to see the rheumatologist on Monday . This could be an interesting comparison with the decisions of the rheumatologist I saw in UK last September. I will keep you all posted.
