I saw my GP this week for the first time in about 8 months and obviously he was horrified that I was still taking 12mg pred/day 10months on.
But, I still can't get my arms up to, let alone above, shoulder height until lunchtime and wake as if my torso is in a vice. After tossing and turning thru the small hours.
Plus side is that my energy levels are pretty good, I've learnt to pace and probably achieve about 75% of my pre PMR activities.
Should I split my dose? Take more paracetamol, more hot showers? In the excellent book (Kate?), she talks about how much paracetamol she took, yet some of you wonderful aunties, recommend flushing out the inflammation with the pred.
I don't know what to do? (ESR and CRP both below 5)
