Mon, Mar 2 11:19am · Polymyalgia Rheumatica (PMR): Meet others & Share Your Story in Polymyalgia Rheumatica (PMR)

SOUNDS LIKE WE ARE ON THIS JOURNEY TOGETHER! MY FAMILY DOCTOR IS GREAT NOW TREATING ME FOR A CHEST AND SINUS INFECTION DUE TO THE LOW IMMUNITY I NOW HAVE AND SO IT GOES. I SEE MY NEW DOCTOR A RHEUMATOLOGIST ON 3/12, TO START MY PMR PROGRAM, BOTH OF MY DOCTORS ARE WITHIN A 3 MILE RADIUS THANK GOODNESS AND CLOSE TO HOME . LIKE YOU WAS ALWAYS TOO ACTIVE AND I STILL AM BUT TRYING TO TAKE TIME TO REST AND READ MORE, IN OTHER WORDS SIT DOWN!! I USED TO PLAY ON THE GROUNDS OF UVA WHEN I WAS GROWING UP, MANY MOONS AGO AS I AM 78 NOW AND I DID NOT SIGN UP PMR….BUT IT IS WHAT IT IS! HAVE A GOOD DAY. JOYCE

For now I would stay on a dose that you feel good at AND do not change that dose and TAPER down slowly. You will feel better and worry less😉

THIS IS THE NEW APPROACH TO START HIGH AND TAPER DOWN SLOWLY WITH THE DOSES.
