I am due to have these 2 procedures on 31/12/13. Has anyone had an MRI of the orbits? And if so are you expected to keep eyes open? I have had many of the GCA symptoms but I am 48, and temple biopsy was negative although had been on low dose Pred for 10 months. Bloods are also fairly normal. I am also waiting for nerve conduction studies of the tongue, as my tongue develops clots, colour changes and spasms which last all night. Have a lovely new Rheumy doing these investigations after other Rheumy who implied I must be anxious, as couldn't be that unfortunate to have both atypical PMR and atypical GCA.
