Hi, just joined PMRGCAuk and have been interested to read other's experiences. I started with PMR in January and was diagnosed in March and have been on pred since then. I was also prescribed Alendronic Acid which I've taken myself off after talking to friends who've had really bad dental problems after taking Alendronic Acid. I also had a bad reaction myself - feeling manic and argumentative and 'high'. Anyone else had similar problems? I'm now drinking Almond Milk to boost calcium levels.
