Thanks for info, John. Rheumy back in office now and I had to go back up to 20 mgm. Bit of a shock, but the pain was so bad. Also found out that #s were quite high. Can’t believe where one has pain from PMR…fingers, hands, hips, upper arms, neck, shoulders. Guess I should have called rheumy earlier…much earlier. Many thanks for everyone’s help!! It’s good to have this blog.
