Thanks Charlena for your reply. We definitely share similarities in our husbands. I failed to mention the bruising; oh my gosh! And, our rheumatologist confirmed my suspicions that Prednisone can cause dramatic personality and temperament changes. My husband recently went from 4 mg to 3mg and has not experienced the return of any pain 🙂 He started the Prednisone about 2 yrs. ago. We understand that the PMR can go into remission but, like others here, can likely return. It was good to hear from someone else who shares our issues.
