After five days of upping my dose from 7mgs to 10 megs I finally called my doctor. She decided that I should go back to 15mgs and retaper down. I am NOT upset! My first guide through this journey was good with the original diagnosis and exlaining PMR to me but then rushed me thru the early tapering steps.
After a short bounce up to 20mgs (three weeks) went back to 15 for 11 days. Then down to 10! At this point, I knew very little about PMR but felt a need for a more knowledgable guide through this journey.
I have a great specialist now. I think the 15 down to 10 taper has been the reason for my lack of success in tapering and I am happy to be moving up the ladder rather than down for now. Hopefully this will do the trick!
Thanks to everyone for your support and guidance over the weekend.
