Agreed. They are bossy and forthright, but you will learn so much.

Thanks so much lindapc, I am in awe of you getting down to 1 mg!! I understand your reluctance to reduce further. Has your doctor done a CPR blood test? Mine does them regularly and seems to base all decisions on this, regardless of my ability to continue to taper. Oh well … onwards!
Hello Everyone. I live in Perth, Western Australia. I have posted on here before but not for a while. I was diagnosed with PMR in December last year, and put on 20mg of prednisone. I have been tapering ever since, ran into a bit of a flare when I hit 4mg. I have been on 4mg for 3 months, so feel a bit stuck. My CPR got down to 1 on 15mg, but has slowly risen to 26 while on 4mg. My doc wants me to stay on 4 for another 6 weeks, but I have decided to try 3mg then 4mg then 4mg. Just a cheeky little reduction. I just need to keep moving forward, and I feel fine, just stiffness in thighs and shoulders. Thoughts?
