Hi I have just been diagnosed with PMR and I am only 44!!. Having been to 3 Doctors and numerous blood tests. I was started off on a 45mg dosage that is now down to 15mg per day. I am suffering from really bad night sweats, always hot and always very thirsty. I am also diabetic which I have been advised will be challenging to control whilst I am taking steroids. I have noticed that since having a decrease in my dosage the pain has worsened and will be advising Doctor next week. I think that I am very lucky and with the current Doctor I am with and my Specialist Nurse as they genuinely care and do not fob me off. I would always challenge a Doctor if I did not feel happy, which I did, never just take the first answer you are given, just because they are Health Professionals does not always make them right!!
