I am so confused with these symptoms. I have GCA, polymyalgia and cervical spondylitis, only been diagnosed about 6 weeks. I have gone from 40mg to 30 over the last 2 weeks and supposed to be reducing again tomorrow. The last week or so I have been getting severe morning pain in my head and neck which I am putting down to the cervical spondylitis as I have the crunching sounds in my neck when I move it. This is relieved by a pain killer and I don't have anymore trouble till the next morning after sleeping. I am still getting mild symptoms of the GCA creepy crawley sensations in my head. (is this normal after 6 weeks and is it an ongoing symptom?) I was under the impression that the steroids took away all the symptoms. I have also noticed when I chew I get pain in my neck muscles, I have not had that before. I get occasional neck pain which I think could be the polymyalgia but I am not completely sure. I am just so confused with it. My dr has left me to reduce again tomorrow to 20. I feel this will be ok but don't want to risk my sight in case these symptoms are to do with the GCA .
