I was diagnosed with PMR in October 2015 and was given 15mg Pred.
I have now tapered down to 4mg with GP's advice ( I have been on 4mg for 3 weeks). I still have PMR symptoms around 6am every day.
I take my Pred around 8am and after a warm shower the shoulder pain and hip ache starts to go and by 9am it has gone.
I would like to taper further but I am not sure if or when I should do it.
Also, I find that if for example I swim in the morning (3 times a week) I am fit for nothing for the rest of the day. Am I overdoing things? I really enjoy swimming though. Thank you Cassie
