|At third attempt saw GP who seemed to understand PMR/GCA. He's referring me to rheumatology and neurology to determine whether what was diagnosed as GCA by first GP is in fact that. In the meantime I continue on 30mg Prednisolone with slow reduction after six weeks. My symptoms have lessened considerably but both GP 3 and I are aware of the feel good factor a raised dose can give initially, though I'm making the most of it and enjoying increased mobility. He also ran through all my medications and saw that I had not taken any bone protection apart from ADCAL since I stopped Fosimax after an oesophegal reaction some years ago. I am prescribed Risendronate and wonder if anyone has had any experience, good or bad, to pass on
