I was prescribed 30mg Pred 3 weeks ago for symptoms of GCA - intermittent temple pain , tremors at base of skull and moving headache. 3 GPs disagreed as to whether this was GCA but after 3 weeks symptoms have lessened but not gone and intermittent temporal pain persists. Should I raise my dose to 40mg autonomously - I understand that conventionally this is considered to be the minimum effective dose to start - ort subject myself to another round of GP uncertainty? Would be grateful for advice. Thank you
