I have just come home from my first visit to this new rhumie. who gave me the good news that he could find no evidence for active PMR. Wonderful! but I hardly dare hope that it is true He put me through a series of movements that I did well and which he said that would not be possible if I was not in remission.
Because I had suspected GCA I have been on 20 mg preds for the last month or so I am afraid this this intake is masking the PMR
I told him about my scalp tenderness that went away when I went up to 25mg and returned when I went down to 15 He thought that that might e something else as the tenderness was right in the middle rather than to one side. He also advised a too fast taper at 5mg every fortnight and of course I can amend that.
He comes very highly recommended and I really hope he is right What do you learned and experienced people think
