Some of you have followed my odd Journey meeting a reumy 1,5 month ago telling me that he was pretty shure that I didn’t have PMR due to my ”Young” age. I’m 47. He suggested a Pred withdrawal quicker than anyone in here would advice me to.
I have tapered 2,5 mg every second week, from 17,5 to 5 in 6 weeks. And I’m fine. Really, I don’t have any PMR symtoms and not much of withdrawal pain either. Just a burning feeling shortly in my left thie muscle sometimes.
I have a lack of energy that comes on very suddenly aswell, but subsides if I rest.
My hope is getting stronger of course. Can he be right?
