Hi, new to forum. Diagnosed with GCA and PMR 6 yr. ago. Being maintained on 5mg. Pred. for awhile with only minor flares. About two months ago developed pain behind and below ears. About a month ago developed what appeared to be severe allergy symptoms -- congested nose, runny nose, watery eyes, and dry cough. Never had allergies before. MD started me on meds for allergies with a no relief. 3 weeks ago the muscle pains, stiffness, and severe headache started with an elevated CRP. Started on 60mg. Pred. and now CRP normal and pain and headache much less. nasal congestion continues. Wondering if anyone has any thoughts on this development?
