I started on 15mg of pred in April, after 8 hours started to have some relief from the pain that had blited my life for three months, pain continued to reduce over following weeks and I started to feel back to normal. After two months was able to get down to 10mg, had some pain initially but decided to bear with it and this eventually lifted.
After blood test doctor advised to reduce dose to 9mg, again pain returned but thinking it would go away as before I stuck at it for 8 days, big mistake! I am still not entirely certain that the pain relates to my pmr as it only affects my left hip, left calf muscle and Left ankle which is particularly painful. I have now gone back to 12mg which I have been taking for two days providing I rest I am not getting such intense pain.
Any suggestions as to what I do next?
