This is Beryl …..I honk what John says is a more sensible move as you do not what a flair up….

I myself have been having trouble and am on 7.5mg with methotrexate 20mg once a week folic acid also …..I am improving but as usual very slowly …..pain level is never the same as it seems it goes with how much I have done that day ……but the good thing is where I had pain up to my waist it is now from thighs and down ……th stiff back was very difficult to deal with …..

I think I would say to you don't be in too much of a hurry this thing has a mind of its own …..but we are all different …..Beryl

Hello this is Beryl …..have an update on my condition …….our travels to Sicily were too much and coursed my PMR to spread to my waist …..now gone down to the hips and of course a lot more pain with it ……
Had my six month visit to OHSU in Portland and my Doctor, to put a long story short , wants to get me off Preds as I have been on it for ten years …..and has put my preds up to seven and a half for two weeks to get the inflamation down, and then five until I see him again….added to this is Methotrexate and folic acid…..tapering …..so it's watch this space and see how I get on with this new mix of meds….well must smile and put on a happy face …….Beryl
