Had no idea what was happening to me when I could not bend down a pick up a tool off of the floor. Next morning had a headache and felt sore all over ( like I had worked out) but had not. Could not shake it as it got worse. Went to my doctor where after a series of blood and other tests said I had developed PMR. Prednisone @15mg followed and as usual relief came but not for long. Reduction to 10 and 5 mg increased my muscle aches proportionally but was determined to withdraw from Prednisone. I’m down to 2mg/day now with morning aches and pain but at least I know I can make it. Strength and stamina have gradually dimished over these years. Muscle mass declining as well. Shrinking Man. Occasionally depressed over this condition as I am limited on physical activity with this stuff. Frustrated! Will get totally off of the Prednisone but not sure how it will go.
