I am new to this but am seeking information on Polymyalgia Rheumatica and the treatment of Prednisone. I was diagnosed and put on Prednisone on June 23rd.
I am terrified of the side effects of the treatment. I have started walking 30 minutes in the morning and the evening and am eating just cereal in the morning and the rest of the day eat fruits and vegetables. I am wondering if I continue this if it will be possible to keep the weight off. Also, since I have not quite been on the Prednisone for a month when I can expect these side effects to show up. I started with 60mg for 3 days, went to 40 and am now on 30mg. In a couple of days I can reduce the dosage to 25mg. Any suggestions on diet or anything else. What I know about PMR and Prednisone is just the few websites that I have located online.
I would appreciate any advice or input. Thanks so much,
