PMR flare without a dose reduction
I have had pmr for 1 year now I reduced to 8 mg by last December when I had my first flare. I went up to 15 mg and reduced again to 10 mg then .5 mg per month. A couple of days ago I was at 8.5 mg and had been for almost a month with no issues. 2 days ago my lower back was sore then my left shoulder and now my right.
I have been doing yard work and golfing. I have seen my dr who ordered a crp blood test and tomorrow will see my physio. Should I increase my dose to 13. 5 for a week or so then go down to 9 mg and start again the taper at .5 mg per month. My dr thinks this should work and leaves this up to me as he knows I am conscientious. Looking for this group’s suggestions
