Hi @ayjaydee you may have noticed I moved your post to this existing discussion on PMR and Coronavirus so that you can have your posts on this topic in one place and also so you can connect with others who haves similar concerns.

I also have added this discussion to Mayo Clinic Connect's new group dedicated to COVID-19, https://connect.mayoclinic.org/group/covid-19/. The idea is to help Connect members cope and connect during these unprecedented times.

You may follow along with the COVID-19 group by clicking on +Follow. You're welcome to look at the discussions there and participate, including starting any new discussions on any COVID-19-related topic you'd like to talk about.

Back to you @ayjaydee, I thought @johnbishop, @bridgegoddess @maija and @mbm would be able to share their knowledge and thoughts on this topic. Have you had a chance to ask your doctor about this?

I got the feeling he didnt really know but he was supportive of a plan to get off it if possible so i will try going down to 1 mg tomorrow and 1/2 mg in a week etc. he told me to just watch to ensure the pain doesnt become unbearable
