I was diagnosed with PMR in July 2017. I was prescribed 15mgs of prednisolone. I have managed to reduce to 8mgs but each time I reduce to 7mgs my hips become sore.
The first time I went back to 8 mgs for a week and that seemed to help.
I tried to reduce to 7mgs again but my hip pain came back. I increased to 8mgs over a week ago but this time the hip soreness has remained.
I guess I need to increase a bit more but this is where I get really confused! I don’t know how much to increase and for how long?
My GP just wants me to keep reducing, so there I no point asking her.
I should be really grateful for any help.
