I Have had PMR now for about 15 months and am on prednisone for it. I noticed about 2 months ago that I couldn't sing like I used to. I had lost my range. I now am getting quite hoarse. It is progressively worsening. Does anyone know of a cure for this? Would going back up on the dose of prednisone help? I am looking for an ENT who has experience with rheumatologic disorders, such as PMR.
About two weeks after beginning Zetia, I started to have severe itching after a shower. It also happened when I washed my hands or face.

I tried hydrocortizone, moisturizer, took oral benedryl. Nothing worked except for time. I discontinued Zetia today and hope to be itch-free soon!
