So My GP thinks I have pmr and so do I. I am not taking prednisone until the end of the month as we are trying CBD oil first (have since read it doesn’t really help for pmr). So far CBD hasn’t touched my pain.
My question is this. Earlier in the week I was so sore. Needed to go clothes shopping and I was tired and exhausted by the end having to wear a coat and use my arms so much trying on tops.
So the next day I took extra strength Advil (ibuprophen) along with the CBD oil. Just needed to function. That whole day I felt wonderful. I was able to clean the mud room out top to bottom and go on two walks. I could cross my legs with little pain and get off a chair easily. I could even get my socks and shoes on which normally I dread. Still sore, couldn’t get off the floor, nights still hard but still much better with the advil than on CBD oil alone.
So if the advil is working along with CBD oil, should I continue taking the advil instead of committing to prednisone? Or maybe it means I don’t have pmr? Or maybe I just had a couple good days and it was coincidence? Does anyone else get some relief with Advil?
Thank you for helping a newbie.
