I have had PMR for 2 years and I gradually cut down to 2mg a day pred about a month ago. Since then I have moved house ( I know I should not have cut during stressful time).
Now over the past 2 weeks I have PMR symptoms returning with a vengeance.
Sweats at night, disturbed sleep as I have pain when I move or turn, terrible pain in the morning which eases during the day but remains bad when I get up after resting, fatigue and now pain in ankle and wrist and mood changes.
I know I need to increase Pred but please any advice about what to increase to now from 2mg as I need a quick fix for the pain and can't live like this.
What should in increase to?
How long will the increased Pred mg take to make me feel better?
How long should I stay on this dose?
