Hi everyone, I hope you are all doing good.
I am back up to 20mg pred for the past 3 days after trying to drop to 17.5mg did not go to plan.
Yesterday was my worse day in a while, I had to use my stick to go into Asda with my Mum. It comes to something when your mum puts your 4 bags of groceries in to her car and takes the trolly back. My mum is 20yrs older than me but you wouldn't know it as she runs rings around me.
By the evening yesterday I could barely walk and wondered what the hell was going on. I went to bed at 8.45pm after having what I think some of you call total burn out in the afternoon. I was sitting resting watching tv and attempting a little embroidery when all of a sudden it was 3.30pm, yep I had gone to sleep and I can't remember feeling tied.
I am at the docs this afternoon so will tell him all. Hopefully he will agree to stay on 20mg pred for now.
my thighs are really achy and painful, my knees are also and hurt to touch. My right shoulder and neck hurt and my fingers and toes are also numb.
I hate this damn PMR, I feel old before my time and hate relying on others to help out.
pic is me and my mum 2yrs ago pre PMR at my eldest son's wedding but she still looks the same.
