I was diagnosed with PMR at the beginning of August this year (2017) after weeks of being virtually disabled. I was prescribed prednisolone (20 mgs per day) and my immediate 'recovery' felt like a miracle of biblical proportions. I have reduced the steroids by 2.5 mgs every two weeks as instructed and am now down to 10 mgs which will be my maintenance dose. I have suffered a few side effects from the steroids, most of which are well documented but I keep getting small bleeds in my eyes which are not painful but miserable to look at. I would be interested to know if anyone else has had this problem. My blood pressure is within normal limits, incidentally.
