Hi, John,
Yes, I was immediately put on 15 mg. of pred. It worked within 3 days. I feel almost completely normal now. All pain is gone. BUt am experiencing weakness in my legs, which I don't like. THe doctor is suggesting doing strengthening exercises for that. I am now on 10 mg. of pred., and will soon be backing down to 9. So far, the pain is non-existent.

@aspine It sounds like you are doing great tapering down. Did your doctor or rheumatologist provide any suggestions or possible lifestyle changes to help with the PMR? You might find the following article helpful if you haven't already seen similar information.
