Oct 13, 2017 · Polymyalgia rheumatica in Autoimmune Diseases

I was diagnosed with PMR based on symptoms and blood tests a few months ago. Started on 15 mg. prednisone. But had bad headaches. So doc upped my dosage to 40 mg in case I have temporal ateritus. Then did biopsy two weeks ago to rule that out so now down to 15 mg again. Will taper down for next few months. Hopefully, then remission. My problem now is so much pain from the biopsy at the site. Not infected but extremely tender to the touch.

I’ve just kept up walking 30 minutes, 2x day. No pain from that. I’m trying to ease back into pilates – where I can get muscle stiffness, but not the same pains as PMR before I started taking prednisone.
