Diagnosed with PMR - usual symptoms,+ high level of inflammatory markers. 15mg of prednisolone cleared the pain, but after 3 weeks, I want to reduce - at 68 I don't like the idea of the side effects. I'm taking the usual bone protecting stuff. Went down to 10mg 4 days ago, and have some stiffness - nothing I can't deal with. But, does letting the inflammation come back mean I am damaging my joints? I have a fair bit of osteoarthritis, so don't want to take risks.
