I was diagnosed in dec-17 with PMR of my GP, but when I met my reumy in march he said I am to young for PMR so I wheened out my Pred from march-july. Since then they have done all kinds of bloods and MR finding nothing but inflammations in my hip area. I got my diagnose and my Pred back last thursday and started on 12,5 mg hoping that would be enough. I have been feeling less pain and stiffness but I am not at all pain free. In decembre I started on 30 mg, being pain free within 12 hours but I think that's too much. My reumy sais 20 now and maybe that's where I'll end up. I am 47 and I do have PMR. Don't let anyone say that you are too young for this disease! Those 2 months without Pred now has been awful!
Is there anyone who have experienced becoming pain free when the inflammation gradually is treated when starting on a bit lower dose like me?
