UPDATE: had my PT evaluation. Pleased to say that the PT I am working with HAS worked with people with PMR. It was so wonderful to walk in a facility and speak to people about my PMR and not get the blank, confused stare.
The PT is saying he only wants to see me once a week to start, he said he didn't want to give me any pain or exacberate my PMR in any way. He is saying 4 visits to improve range of motion and 4 visits for strengthening. Second visit tomorrow!
My GP has finally given me the authorization to go to Physical Therapy. I am hoping to have the PT help me regain my upper body flexibility. I wanted to bring some information with me to help the PT understand PMR and how it affects the muscles. It seems that at one time, I thought, I saw a post regarding the effect PMR has on muscles and muscle recovery. I have scoured the site but can't find what I was looking for. Maybe I saw it elsewhere.
Is there anything specific that any of you would recommend I tell my PT before we get started.
I am currently on 8 mg of steroid daily. Starting a 35 day taper of 1 mg (DL's plan) beginning March 4th.
