Hello, I've just joined the group today although I've had problems which took a while to be confirmed as PMR in May this year. Now down to 13mg prednisolone a day. Life is very much back to what it was this time last year when the pains began. This means I'm physically active and spend as little time as possible in doors. I live in the north east of England, am 68 years old and retired - from paid employment at least as I volunteer with a couple of local groups.
