Hello @steve9900, Welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect, a welcoming online community where patients and caregivers share their experiences, find support and exchange information with others. Thank you for starting this discussion. I am a fan of Dr. Terry Wahls. Reading her story of treating her symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis and going from a wheel chair to riding her bike daily was inspiring and gave me some hope when I really needed it. I never got to the strictest version of her diet but did follow the beginners version and that helped me change my lifestyle and I learned to eat healthier. I followed it closely for a couple of months after being diagnosed with small fiber peripheral neuropathy and while it didn't help with the numbness I have, it did improve my overall health. I think it's a win-win for you to give it a try.
My PMR has been in remission since 2018 and I do give some credit to the eating habits and nutrition that I picked up after reading her book The Wahls Protocol. I'm surprised that you are able to avoid taking prednisone to help with the PMR pain. When my PMR was active both times, it was really debilitating and not taking a pain medication wasn't an option for me. Do you mind sharing any coping mechanisms you use for the pain associated with your PMR? Were you diagnosed by a rheumatologist?
