I can hardly believe this, but, after two and a half years of PMR, and tapering down currently to 5mg pred per day, I suddenly find I have developed uncomfortable pain in my wrists and hands. This started about a month ago, and causes.me discomfort when trying to lift something heavy, as well as holding my racquet for playing racquet ball, and pulling on a bell rope whilst bell ringing. It affects both wrists, though the right is significantly worse than the left.
Throughout the PMR, I have really only experienced pain at the top of my arms, and the back of my thighs; this has got no worse recently, and is generally controlled by the preds.
Does this sound like the PMR has decided, at this later stage, to attack another part of my body? There have been the inevitable ups and downs over the last couple of years, but I feel very reluctant now to increase my pred dose..
Any thoughts welcome please.
