DEAR DR. GOTT: I have been taking prednisone, 10 milligrams daily, for 14 months for polymyalgia rheumatica. I cannot take less than 8 milligrams without having a lot of pain in my wrists and hands. I have researched this and discussed my concerns with my rheumatologist, who has put me on methotrexate (four tablets of 2.5 milligrams once a week) to try to wean me off the prednisone. Is this the lesser of two evils? I worry about the long-term side effects of both medicines and, more importantly, how to cure the PMR. Any suggestions?
DEAR ABBY: My domestic partner and I have been together 12 years. I love him dearly. He is sweet, funny, witty, kind, and most important, willing to live with me. I can't imagine life without him.
