ive had pmr since september, 2016. currently im on the back half of my dsns taper to 5 mg pred for the second time. for about 2 years now, maybe longer, ive had giant bulging veins in my hands and wrists, very unsightly. my non-pmr girlfriends' hands look nothing like my ugly ones. two weeks ago i upped my pred to 8 mg for 3 days due to returning pain in my pelvic girdle area and then reduced it by 1/2 mg per day until i got back on my dsns journey to 5.
yesterday i noticed all the veins in my hands were normal! i mean they looked halfway decent. and they look almost normal today. im feeling a tad better too, which begs the question: do you think the pop up in pred cleared out some inflammation that had been building up? Ive increased the dosage before, but never noticed any difference at all in the veins in my hands. (of course theres always the pred head thought that my blood isnt flowing as well as it should and i will keel over at any moment. thank you, pred, for those disturbing thoughts.)
