Hi Every one thanks for all the info regarding PMR .this has increase my knowledge an understanding regarding this illness we all have in common.I am now in my 6th week of being told I have PMR. I first started with 20mg then 2wks after had a blood test then came down to 15mgs.so far I have been ok apart from some minor discomfort But bearable when I have been active with my little grandson .had another blood test an the reduction starting with 12.5mgs today.feeling a bit apprehensive as my muscle in my top shoulder feels a bit knotted again I am assuming that this is due to lifting my grandson. Will see how this reduction goes. I also have a dexa scan on the 5th of October so hope that goes well.thanks again for all the info .
