Hi everyone, I have had Pmr for six years and a bit, with all the horrible ups and downs and disappointment of failed reductions.
My last reduction from 1mg has gone like a dream, after numerous attempts and I finally took my last Pred two days ago.
At the moment all ok, but how long do I have to wait until I can safely say I am in remission. I can't believe it might all be over at last.
A few months probably just to make sure - but do remember the normal aches and pains of normal life previously masked by Pred are liable to come to the surface. Plus of course you are 6 years older - so remember that as well.... so don’t assume every niggle is PMR.
Thank s DorsetLady, I am over the moon. Thought the day would never come. Better not get too excited though.
I know it a cliche - but like most things you just have to take one day at a time - and enjoy!
Thank you x
I was at zero for a few weeks and, sadly, my returning niggles were definitely PMR. I think if this happens you'll be pretty sure. If you have doubts, put it down to the other causes mentioned! 🍀
