Hi, hope everyone has had a good break so far.
Just wondering about letting PMR run its course without steroids? I reckon I had it at least 2 yrs before diagnosis and my weight, diabetes and bipolar were stable tho I was suffering enough PMR symptoms to be trailing back and forth to docs, physio etc.
Now the other conditions are all over the place, and I still have 50% PMR symptoms. The pred worked great at first at 15mg, but didnt last.
So I'm thinking for me is it better to deal with PMR without treatment and have other conditions controlled, or treat PMR and lose control? My gp avoided answering the question. Im waiting for rheumy appt, referred in Sept. Am down to 10mg pred, reducing 1mg 3 wkly. Am getting a little fed up, esp as Im carer to my hubby and daughter, Im supposed to be the healthy one in the house!!!
Anyway any thoughts?
Oh and do you know if diabetic eye screening will show any pmr eye changes?
