Wow, wasn't expecting that! 3 days in agony, neck, shoulders- worst they've ever been. Hips not too bad, bearable. Listening to your previous posts I increased from 15mg to 20mg Pred. Relief coming at last! Will visit GP next week - didn't have energy to drag myself to see him after all those hot sleepness nights. GP pressurising me to reduce as I've been on 15mg since Dec 2016 but each slight reduction I'm in pain (another reason to just self medicate to see what works). Feeling almost human now, been for potter around garden. Talking of the garden - perhaps I should apologise to any traumatised neighbours who've seen me in my nightshirt at 3am trying to cool down. We might get PMR and other ailments as we age but who cares what people think. I did cool down! At least I didn't go commando!
