Hi my name is Sherri and I live in the United States, specifically California and even more specifically in the town where we have recently had horrendous wildfires. So stress has definitely been part of my life lately. I was diagnosed with PMR in September and similar to all the posts I've read, within 3 days of starting on prednisone my pain was miraculously gone!!! I have yet to see a rheumotologist, I was diagnosed by a "medical mystery dr." I was given a 10 day plan starting with 60 mg a day for 3 days and down to 10 mg at the end of the 10 day period. I am now on 15 mg a day - have tried twice to go down to 12.5 - but pain returned. Sorry this is so long, I wanted to introduce myself and join in, I've been a "lurker" for too long!!!
