Hi: Have been treated for 3 yrs for PMR. Was on prednisone for 21/2 yrs but
caused my blood sugar to go to high. I elected to get off the prednisone because
of the side effects, including skin thinning and bleeding. Started off with 20mg
for 3 days and felt better while on prednisone. Doctor took me down to 5mg
which I was on for over 2 yrs. I then had a relapse and went back to 40mg
evidently tapering back down to 10. After my blood sugar went to high I
went off the prednisone then taking Meloxicam. After being off the prednisone my pain and discomfort returned along with stiffness. Is there anyone out there
that has tried anything else to deal with the pain and stiffness?
