reduced down to 1mg by the middle of last year when I came off the pills and thought that was that. March this year the PMR systems returned together with head problems, tenderness either side of the temple. uncomfortable when swallowing and minor headaches, did wonder whether I had GCA. Saw doctor he was concerned, temporal biopsy within a week and GCA confirmed now on 60Mg of Pred, question I have is if they need a biopsy to tell whether you have it how is it worked out when to reduce the dosage. Will be seeing the doctor very soon so will check with him but just wondered.
