Dear friends, I was DX with PMR in February this year. I refused taking the prednisone. I take Advil 2 in morning, 2 in evening. Along with this, I changed the diet, I follow the Anthony William protocol, did research on anti-inflammatory food, I juice and my last sed rate went down by 30 points. I continue that way, I discovered delicious healthy way of living. And I have to add that I go to the swimming pool 3-4 times/week and gently exercices. Yes, there is still pain, stiffness, weather like rain, cold does affect but I keep positive and I know that I will be pain free and mobile as before soon!! Blessings to all!
