Hello, hoping some of you can advise me on how to manage flareups. It has been about 2 1/2years now that I have had PMR. I was never on a really high dose of Prednisone, started at 20mg. Whenever I go below 15 even by 1/2mg my symptoms return, so I go back to 15 and in a few days to a week am feeling better.
What I am wondering is when you have a flareup and return to the higher dose how long should you wait before you try to reduce again? I am getting very frustrated at trying to reduce and would just like to stay at 15 as my energy leval is pretty decent and I feel well. However I keep getting the message from my rhematologist , family Dr. and even my pharmacist that I need to be decreasing. That is all right for them to say as they have no idea of how it feels to be unable to function properly.
