Hi, I’m currently on 9mg of Prednisolone, for PMR, having tapered from 15mg which I started on last July. My rheumatology appointments have been cancelled, understandably, and I have been left to try and bring down my own dosage.
My question is that, now I am on 9 mg I am experiencing pain and ‘crunching’ in many of my finger joints, wrists and toes, is this something I should just work through and carry on tapering in the hope that is goes, or is this considered a flare and I should up my dosage? I am also finding turning of lids, cutting veg, typing, small motor movements painful. My GP is not being very helpful.
Is anyone able to give me any guidance? Thank you.
