Getting to the right level

Hi,I am Carole age 63 and have just joined, I was diagnosed with pmr last August and put on 20g of prednisone decreasing gradually, I went from 12 and 1/2g to 10g at the beginning of January and have all the sympton s back, I am struggling with pain, hot sweats and tiredness and as I can't get to see my doctor until next week i have upped my steroids back up to 12 and 1/2g and hoping i will feel better soon.

Is the 12.5mg working better? Do you have any other symptoms besides the typical PMR ones? Maybe you need to try reducing in smaller steps from here - but don't try anything until you are as well as you were on 12.5mg before.

Hi,

If you haven’t seen it already have a look at post I wrote for newcomers like you. Hopefully it will tell you things the doctor hasn’t and give you some idea of life with PMR
