Tapering down and on 20mg pred. Keeping a daily diary to help this up and down process as I go along. X-ray yesterday and hip fracture has healed completely with screws so no hip replacement! Danced Saturday after playing in ukelele gig. Hula hooped half hour Sunday. 20 mins today. Self diagnosed (with this wonderful group and a cheeky tongue inspection by pharmacist) that I have thrush.... (Been complaining for ages ....). Can deal with hump on neck and fat face. Struggling with huge black bags under eyes? Another pred side effect? Chelitis - side of mouth, trying different remedies found on health unlocked and again, after 9 months on prescribed cream, now having success with lavender and Vaseline! Life is in spite of PMR feeling good today! Thanks everyone - I pour over every entry and it helps me keep on track and positive. Resting now!
