Hello. My name is Kasey and after being diagnosed with PMR in July 2017 I'm learning all kinds of things about this disease thanks to PMRGCAuk and reading Kate Gilbert's book. Thanks for great resources. I have never experienced, and hope to never experience again, the pain I went through in my 4 week acute phase. I was diagnosed and started prednisone at 20 mg/day on July 17 with immediate relief and am now down to 15 mg. I'm very interested in taper ideas and hope to be off the prednisone as quickly as possible without flaring. I'm eager to learn about healthy eating as well. I feel very well right now - quite back to normal in fact, but it sounds from my reading on your website and in Gilbert's book that I can expect some more of that pain as I taper.
