My name is Claude I am 53 an artist and yoga teacher and have been diagnosed with PMR just before Xmas 2017. I have since contributed here and there but not formally introduced myself. I am very impressed and comforted by the level of knowledge and support by everyone on this forum. It has been a great help to me.
I have been on pred 15mg since 15th Dec then went down to 12.5mg and then 10 for one week.
My main symptoms have gone (shoulders and hips) but I am left with very bad fingers in toes. On the very wise advice from Jgyles and pmrpro I went back up 1mg (1.25 in fact) It will be a week tomorrow. It is a bit better but not gone completely.
Yesterday I tried to do 12.5mgin the morning and then 1.25 (1/2 a 2.5mg pill) at midnight. I think there was an improvement this am but had real trouble sleeping. Not sure it could be the pred (such a small amount) or me just being restless...
Any suggestions as to the way forward, shall I stay at 13.75mg for another week and try to see those symptoms off or start to tapper again?
Many thanks to all
