Hi wise ones!
I need some advice please. I was diagnosed with PMR back in March and had successfully reduced from 20-10mg, at 2.5 intervals with several weeks in between. I then tried 9mg but experienced severe pain in my upper arms so, for the last few weeks, have gone back up to 10mg. I am in as much pain as ever. Should I 'blitz' it with 15mg for a few days then drop again? Any suggestions.
Second question...I am due to fly to Cyprus on holiday in 2 weeks. The flights were booked before I was diagnosed and, having just checked, they are both very early in the morning, after a drive. I will be at my absolute worst at the time I have to get up and worry about showering and dressing. Should I set the alarm to take my meds literally in the middle of the night? I need to get up at about 4 anyway.
