Pulse number 1

In my last entry, I had made it down to 7 mg of prednisone. Today I am down to 3 mg. I also started my first pulse of metronidazole. So far so good! I seem to be a bit tired but am uncertain if the metro is causing it. Any feedback is appreciated!Thank you!Trish

I suffered with progressively worsening pain in my hands, wrists, arms, and shoulders for 4 years. Last year, I was diagnosed with polymyalgia rheumatica and had such severe pain by then I was prescribed 20 mg of prednisone to try to alleviate the progression and pain. However when I dropped the dose biweekly per doctor instruction, the pain was returning.  Although I did what the doctor ordered, over time the pain was getting bad again and I couldn’t get below 10 mg.
