I was diagnosed with PMR about two months ago and my symptoms were relieved immediately. On the doctor's advice I started a reduction of 2.5mg with disastrous results so, following the advice of the lovely people on here, I reduced by only 1mg. Unfortunately this was still not enough so I went back up to my 15mg. Initially this helped but about 10 days ago, I started experiencing dizziness, really loud ringing in one ear and pressure head aches. Of course, having to start antibiotics for an infection under a crowned tooth hasn't helped!! Then, over this last weekend I also started to feel very tired so decided I should get investigated. I managed to see a doctor yesterday morning. I already had a bone scan scheduled for yesterday afternoon so at least I knew that that would be checked. The doctor immediately arranged blood tests - these were taken the same morning - and is make no an urgent referral to a rheumatologist. So, my question is, what is likely to happen at this appointment - is it just a chat, are more tests done, is new treatment suggested? I would be very grateful if someone who has experienced this could give me some advice. Thank you again.
