GCA 4 years down to 7 mg pred. I've been feeling great over the past couple of weeks. Went on holiday last week, cycled and walked. Great - then bang on Sunday I had a dreadful pain on the left side of my head. So bad I couldn't touch my hair. Phoned GP on Monday. He didn't think it was a flare but a nervous problem. Put me on Pregabalin!! However, he said if I am concerned about possible flare to increase Pred to 15 mg for a few days. I asked how I reduce from 15 mg to which he said 'see how you feel'.. Increasing the Pred has certainly helped - the pain is certainly much better. Started 15 mg on Monday, but also 100 mg of Pregabalin. I am wondering which of the meds is easing the pain. Any suggestions please.
