I have been diagnosed with PMR a few weeks ago after a horrendous three months of extreme muscle and joint pain which completely disrupted my life. A few weeks ago I was started on corticosteroid ( Prednisolone) which controlled this pain very quickly and I am on regular reducing dose for the next few months at least. However, I have recently realized that this condition may have to be managed for a long time with constant blood tests and monitoring and I would be very grateful to hear from other sufferers how they cope with it. Any tips for best management would be much appreciated.
