Dear Everyone, I have not posted on the forum for some time. Diagnosed April 2017 with PMR/suspected GCA and started on 40mg Prednisolone. I have been tapering and had managed to get down to 11/12mg Pred per day but reducing further was very difficult and I had some flairs so ended back up again to 16/17mg daily which is what I was on when I saw rheumatologist at the end of Dec '19. She suggested Methotrexate weekly injections as I have stomach problems. I started the MTX at the end of February at which time I was taking 14mg Pred. I have been alright with the MTX injections and have managed to get down to 8mg. In the last two weeks, however, I am suffering from severe fatigue. I am wondering if it is my adrenal glands not kicking in yet and would like your thoughts on this. Also if it is this, what is the treatment. Sorry for the long post.
Thank you, Patg
