Diagnosed with PMR in August 2016 I have reduced from 15mg to 8 mg without too many problems (just get 3 days of shoulder/groin/finger pain for 3 days after each 0.5mg reduction). Taking Alendronic Acid and usual calcium / vitamin D supplements plus various store bought vitamins. However I read on this forum about folk having Dexascans and more blood tests and rheumatologist appointments and wonder why I am not being asked by my doc to come in and be monitored while I am reducing. Do I need to be more assertive or because things are going relatively smoothly (quickly touches wood!) maybe they are letting things continue without monitoring?
Am I needlessly concerned?
