I have been taking a refucing dose of prednisolone since January following a diagnosis of PMR and have managed to taper quite slowly to 11mg daily in split doses (5mg coated at night and 6mg uncoated in the morning) with a reduction in some of the annoying night time symptoms like sweating and restlessness.
Apart from two epsisodes of cystitis during this period I don't believe I have suffered too many side effects and have felt generally much better and more able to get on with daily life. BLood tests confirm that my inflammatory markers are now within normal range. My GP assures me this indicates I am not at risk of the dreaded GCA, but why do I have so much pain in my jaw and face, and a lot of flash headaches?
The assurances of this forum would be most welcome. Many thanks in advance,
