Any help please. 64 W diagnosed Aug last year with PMR. From 20mg tapering 1mg less per month, am now stuck on 13mg. Each night interrupted sleep because inflammation just reaching through and constant head & upper body sweating. I take Pred every morning about 5:00 am. Now at 13:00 inflammation of back of neck and around eyes, seems to be lifting, but most mornings feel like sort of vice sensation around head & usual tingling in limbs, makes me fed up & slow to get going. I live in France & my rheumatologist has not heard of gradually reducing over a month.
Sometimes does it take longer than 4 weeks to make 1mg reduction & you need to stay on same dose for 2-3 months? Will the sweating go away. Does anyone take anything to help them sleep through the night? Any advice/experiences welcome. Thank you.
