What are your rheumatologists using to stop the pain from PMR.?
What type of treatments are your rheumatologists using for your PMR? I was diagnosed April 2023. I have been on prednisone since that day starting at 10 mg every three weeks I keep reducing it by 1 mg until I will be finished middle of November. I was told by my doctor that she does not believe in giving prednisone for more than two rounds. If I still have a lot of pain she will start me on methotrexate. She did mention over-the-counter anti-inflammatories like ibuprofen which I really didn’t sound interested in. have any of you had any luck with the over-the-counter anti-inflammatories? She did mention that she does not believe in medication unless your pain is intolerable. do any of you have the same situation with your rheumatologist?
