Hi, I'm Mazz and this is my first post. I have suffered PMR for 2 years, started on 15mg of Pred, gradually reducing it and now my rheumatologist says my ECR and CRP results are low enough for me to stop Pred altogether. Her preference is for me to take painkillers for the pain I still have, suggesting paracetamol 3 or 4 times a day depending on the pain. This is not working at all, so have been trying different combinations of painkillers without much success. Can anyone suggest a good painkiller or combination of painkillers I can take with good results ? I feel I may have come off the steroids too soon.
