It's encouraging to me to hear how you all are coping with PMR.
My 1st bout with PMR was 13 years ago, I was in my mid 50's. Pretty much text book case....on steroids for two years. This time starting, 15 months ago and starting taking prednisone since April last year. Taking the usual, AA and Adcal-D3 and Ametprozol and my stomach is really tired and upset most of the time. My ESR is in mid 70's and as the Steroids aren't working my Rheumatologist has suggested me reducing the dose from 12mg a day to nothing in approx. 12 ish weeks. Long story, sorry! Feeling really awful compared to just awful. ESR has gone up since last October from 40's to 70's. Getting depressed and angry. Hated the round face when on high dose as well as brusing and hair falling out.
