GCA flare

Hi all

just like to update you. I rang doctors at 8am Doctor phoned back 8.30 gave me an appointment for 10.50 to have bloods taken and see GP after, it looks as though I have a flare up of GCA, she put me on 60mg preds and made an appointment for me to see eye specialist tomorrow morning at 9am. I am still feeling a bit delicate but coping. I must say I have had fantastic support from Ipswich Hospital and my GP surgery and this web site has also been a great support too. Thankyou to you all. Doreen.
