Hi, I am 60 years old mother if 3, nana of 3, retired civil servant working part time as a housing support worker. I was diagnosed with PMR in August this year, prescribed prednisolone 30mg, currently on 14mg. I've always been active but this has hit me like a ton of bricks. That said, those first couple of weeks of steroid intervention was like a miricle, I had died and gone to heaven and given a brand new body. I am feeling it now though, struggling to taper, mornings and evenings challenging, not sure what each new day will bring, but I am determined to manage the beast and any advice on how to keep the black dog at bay will be gratefully received.
