I was diagnosed with PMR in November last year ( had it longer than that though) and have been on a course of prednisolone starting at 20 mg and gradually tapering down to 4 mg . At this level my PMR seemed to be under control for the past two months but recently I've been waking up at daft o clock in the morning with pain across my shoulders and neck .
Have I reduced too far ? When I have a hot bath in the morning and take my Preds I'm fine . Should you be totally pain free , or just persevere with the aches and pains !
The first time I Heard of PMR and found this forum , with all the information and support I thought great at least I'm not alone , but I never realised how much of an impact it would have on my life !!!
Thanks to all the contributors for at least keeping my sanity in tact , you're a great bunch .
