No Symptoms of PMR but SED & CPR Still Up.
My husband, age 84, has had PMR since fall of 2022. He has had no symptoms of PMR since August. Yet his C-Reactive Protein is still moderately elevated (1.34) and SED is moderately elevated (32). He is on 1mg of prednisone daily since October 1st. Does he still have PMR because of the elevated inflammatory markers? We were going to go down to 1 mg of prednisone every other day, if the inflammatory markers were normal with his labs yesterday. Unfortunately they weren't. When can we expect them to return to normal.
