Hello, I'm new to this site.
My 88 year old mum was diagnosed with PMR a while ago. Also had had a mini stroke round about the time she was diagnosed. Since her diagnoses, I have been responsible for her medication - she is taking Prednisolone. She was down to 3mg then had a fall, ended up in hospital and steroid was increased to 8mg. Was told when she came out to decrease by 1mg per week down to 3mg. Doctor then said decrease 1mg a week. She is now down to 1mg. She has never really felt well since she went on this steroid. She is not aching too much, but feels so unwell and tired. At her age she can't really explain what she feels like. After reading up on Prednisolone, I am wondering if she is reducing too quickly. I feel so responsible for her medication and don't know what to do for the best. I just want her to have a good quality of life and be able to go out and enjoy herself.
