Now been on 20 mg of prednisolone for five weeks to try and calm down my GCA and PMR symptoms but if anything it's getting worse.
As well as feeling completely exhausted I have the following.
Feverish most of the time, and awful pain in the following.
Neck, hips,back,legs, and groin.
Last night I had yet another headache and some temple pain which I would describe as moderate, but a bit worrying, however this morning The head pains have calmed down but everything else is really chronic pain wise.
I have been referred to Rheumatology but still waiting for an appointment to come through, my lovely GP has retired and my new GP and I are baffled by whats going on.
I am at the point where I must either up the dose to 40 mg to see what effect if any it has on my syptoms or go to A&E the second choice for me is not at present an option as the last time I went, the nurse practitioner I saw had to google my illness as he had,nt heard of it.
I just do not know what to do and would appreciate your opinions on upping the dose to see if I can get some relief
