Following on from previous posts in relation to my farther R/A & PMR.
After going from 10mg up to 50mg last Tuesday, my farther had his first 2/10 day on Monday which was followed by a 3/10 on Wed & 3/10. This is possibly the first time in months he has felt like this (apart from a steroid intrusion) and I can tell even in his voice tone that he feels different. This coincides with him being off the Met for two weeks now when they decided that it was not working as it should.
He has another appointment tomorrow in preparedness for them starting some biological treatment for the R/A? although this was the original diagnosis prior to PMR I would like them to clearly provide the data points for the R/A before treating with biological treatments. This is due to the fact that the only thing he has responded to now is the 50mg pred in months with nothing else. Is there any key questions we could ask to identify R/A & PMR Diagnosis,
Anyhow, onwards and upwards hopefully we are turning the corner with a massive contribution to your support group,
Many thanks again
