I was diagnosed earlier in the year with PMR and put on predisolone right away. Started at 15mg but had to go up to 40mg a say. Managed to get down to 17.5 but flare up saw me back on 40 mg. now down to 22.5mg. The worry I have is I have been having a lot of headaches which are definitely temperal. I saw the Dr a couple of weeks ago and he was happy it's not GCA. However I'm not so sure now as the headaches seem to be getting worse and are now almost constant. I have an appointment with my Rheumy on the 14th Aug but wondered if I should go back to the doctor before this? I did have to have new glasses recently as I was having trouble with my right eye seeing properly and the prescription changed by two incrents since March this year which was not long after I started the steroids. should I be concerned?
