I have been diagnosed with PMR since 2015 and have been reducing my prednisone with the dead slow method. I have been successful and am now down to 1.5mg after starting at 15. I have noticed that every morning I wake up with my hands hurting and also where my thumbs meet my wrists. I was hoping my PMR was almost gone but I am wondering if it is lingering or is this just arthritis. I hate to increase my prednisone. Anyone have this issue? Thank you!
