Hi folks, I am currently in Turkey on holiday. As most of you are aware I have had GCA type symptoms for around 10 weeks now the burning temples, jaw cramps and tongue tingling. Rheumy refuses to consider it due to my age 47. I was told to reduce from 30mgs to 15mgs, I was on 20mgs till Thurs but increased to 25mgs for the flight to Turkey. Since arriving in Turkey I have found the heat makes the burning pains in the temples a lot more fiery, has anyone else found hot temperatures aggravating head pains? My muscle pains are coping well, and swimming at the villa is helping them :-). . Not sure if I should increase a little more? I have a CT scan booked for 31st May.
