spreads to same side of head and sits there all day. I get really sore back neck and shoulder pain, ( i thought it was my pillows so went out and spent fortune on good ones lol ) pain in hips and down my leg ( all right side) night sweats, weight loss, ( which the steroids have sorted... DAMN!) my eye sight is ok I had these headaches a few years ago and was put down to cluster headaches, but not long after i did have a heartattack .. Pain was so bad i took myself off to A&E (2 weeks ago) they put me on 60mg of steroids and said they think it could be GCA , blood test came back 'acceptable'. The dose of steroids helped a bit but now down to 40mg. I feel they are dragging their heels on all this, as i am taking meds but not got a clue what for ! I go for biopsy on 8th April not seen a consultant yet either.. are these the usual symptoms for GCA? Has anyone had a biopsy as i am a teensy bit scared !
