Thank you ladies for your advice last week on my painful thighs. I upped the pred from 5mg to 10mg five days ago. There has been minimal improvement and I don’t really like being on the double dose now. What do you think I should do please? Go straight back down to 5mg or taper down 1mg at a time daily, or 2.5 mg?
As there has been hardly any improvement, I guess the pain must be something other than PMR (I am wawaiting MRI appointment), although there are two indicators that suggest it is...it is worse in the mornings and gradually improves as the day goes on, and it is bilateral.
My other thought is that 10mg is not enough and, God forbid, I should take 15mg as I did 3.5 years ago.
Any advice you can give me will be gratefully received as I feel in rather a quandary.
