I have only been using a Resmed for four months and the current mask feels really good. Some nights when I have PMR shoulder pain I do not sleep as many hours however the number of hourly events tend to be lower.

Thanks for your good information John. I track my nightly score on my Resmed and I have not been able to figure out how to reduce my hourly events to 5 or or below. It seems as though the fewer the hours I sleep the fewer hourly events I have. Any suggestions please.

I have not talked to rheumatologist This time. Last time she took me to 5 and back to 2. I started at 20 and no pain until 1 11/2. She had me at 2 for 6 weeks…I do have issues with rotator cuffs. Does higher doses of prednisone mask shoulder pain?

I was at 2mg for 6 weeks of prednisone and decided go down to 1 1/2 and after 2 weeks I started to have pain in my shoulders. Will 1/2 a mg make a that sort of difference. I have been on prednisone for 18 months and have gone up and down before… Any recommendation on what to increase the predisone to.

I did get a new mask which tends to stay on all night. Only used it now for two weeks so I will see how it goes. Dreamwear Full face mask.I have a Resmed which gives me a score on line for each night and my scores have been really pretty good.

Roger , I did go to Mayo and I have seen two different Docs there. Both outstanding. I have gone to another major facility when visiting family, where they used a similar protocol as I was on for the last 15 months. It was a slow process with a decrease of the Prednisone level every month. This took a lot of patience but I was determined to follow what they outlined for me in my situation. Our Mentor John, gave me lots of support when I had questions.

My name is Alan and I also have PMR since July 2017. I started on 20 mg and over the first year I tapered down slowly to 1 mg with few Issues. I had a relapse in August and now back to 3 and 2 by the end of the month. I followed the Mayo clinic Protocol. I have gotten great support from others on connect especially from John, the Volunteer Mentor and my rheumatologists
