Thanks for connecting. Do you still notice more pain in the morning than any other time ? I was on 30 mg for 10 days and still had morning shoulder pain However much more tolerable levels than without meds. Splitting the dose helped a lot but my rheumatologist wanted me to try to get to 20 mg within the next week. I decided to try 25 for 3 days then go to 20. So the 20 in Am helps within an hour but the 5 at night is allowing break through pain in the early morning But it is alot better than original but still annoying I am just wondering if you are completely without pain when you wake up . It seems a characteristic of the disease is elevated morning pain Not sure if that is true for most people

I experience some slight pain, in the upper arms, in the morning: though not enough to cause any problem. I continue to have morning stiffness which slows me down – the afternoon is the best time of my day. However, at age 84 perhaps I would have some stiffness even without PMR.
