This is my first post, I was diagnosed with PMR about 3 months ago, and put on prednisilone, 15mg per day for a month, then reducing to 12.5mg and then reducing til a maintenence level is reached.
I'm still on 15mg per day, and the although the depression and tiredness have gone, I'm still in a lot of pain.
Could it be that a) I am just not receptive to steroid medication or b) I don't have PMR.
I have also been having pain in my right hip, which the doctor has diagnoed as bursitis, could there be a connection between the two. I should add that in the last four years I have had bursitis of the heel, both achilles tendons and in my right elbow.
I have a review with my GP on Friday, and I want to come off the steroids, is there any other treatment. I should add that I can't take anything with codeine in it.
