I was diagnosed with PMR in 2014. Have been on pred since. At present I am on 8mg per day but am not symptom free and generally feel unwell. The rheumatologist is constantly pushing me to reduce which I do then feel worse and dose goes back up - a rollercoaster for past few years. Now I am fed up. Dr wants me to start reducing again but I maintain if I am unwell on 8 what is the point? Realise difficulty of long term steroid use but what of quality of life in the present. Any thoughts? Could do with the value of your experience.
