Hi, I've had PMR for four and a half years now and have been on steriods for nearly two years. I am reducing my dosage by half a mg every month as reducing by 1mg seems a step too far, I am down to 4.5mg and not feeling too bad pain wise but have just had a problem start and wondered if anyone else had experienced this. Two weeks ago, my stomach became very bloated and I feel full all the time. Would this be anything to do with steriods? I have been to see the doctor and am having an ultrasound scan next week, but very worried. Just as a background, I had a hysterectomy two and a half years ago with a very large fibroid removed, so that rules that out (I think), unless they come back!! Any advice would be appreciated.
