I'm 61 years old and had a severe attack of PMR last November. Started at 30mg/ day of prednisone, now at 6 and having a relapse.Plan to go back to 10 and work my way back. I have always been fit and active; type A personality; and have always had stressfull jobs. For people with weight gain I went to a Jenny Craig 1500 cal. per week wight program and have lost 20 of the thiry pounds I've gained in six weeks. Exercising 90 minutes per day is a must. At my worst either from PMR or prednisone I.... couldn't sleep,had shortness of breath,had extreme fatigue,had the shakes, had profuse sweating as well as pain and immobility. Does anyone know of any clinics that specialize in the treatment of this disease??? or have knowledge of other treatments of PMR?...any other diet or excercise tips? I already have lost my job so my main purpose in life is to defeat this disease as quickly as possible. Good luck to fellow PMR patients...it is tough to defeat an opponent that you can't get your hands on!!
