hello friends, I have not been on here since Christmas, which came and went.
I have now got down to 25 mg Pred reducing 2.5 mg. BUT temporal head pain is still there every day. My rheumy has suggested moving onto methotrexate as Pred hasn't got me pain free and I am seeing the specialist nurse tomorrow to talk about it. Not sure what the process is and whether its a drug to take instead of Pred and what the withdrawal will be like or if I take both.... Had a flu and pneumonia jab.
The info leaflet says it take 3 - 12 wks to notice the benefits.
I take paracetamol when I cant stand the pain and have to work, take some times up to 6 - 8 a day. I also do a 15 min meditation/ relax which helps.
I am trying to be bold like my lovely cat Llewani (sadly no longer with me) on my motor bike as he wasnt afraid of anything but its a bit daunting. Every time I reduce i get horrible withdrawal for about 3 - 4 days and have to try to time it around work.
Any help as always gratefully received. I want to go armed with all the right questions.
Warm wishes always. xx
