Thought I better finally introduce myself after lurking about here for past few weeks!!
Delighted to have found this community and can see the wealth of knowledge from reading back.
I'm 50 and was diagnosed with pmr 8 weeks ago by my gp. She started me on 15mg preds and the change overnight was nothing short of miraculous lol! I'm now down to 10mg and doing ok. Have seen rheumatologist also and he will see me again at Christmas to see how tapering is going.
Still trying to get my head around what this pmr is and what it means to me and how I'm dealing with it. I'm absolutely convinced it was triggered by exercise... weights to be specific.
Anyway, I'm rattling on here! Just wanted to say hello and thank you for being here x
