I was diagnosed with PMR in 2011 and have never been in remission. I am currently taking 9 mg of prednisone and 20 mg of methotrexate. Most days I feel pretty good (due to exercise and good food) , but am unable to reduce my prednisone dose even 1/2 mg. It seems like there are few people who have PMR this long. I would love to hear stories and suggestions from those who are still dealing with PMR after 7 or more years.
