Morning everyone just wanted to let you know I got admitted last night to A&E by GP.
7 hrs later I was released at 2.30 am. .
On arrival they took my blood and only talking of a ESR test, which I thought was odd it's the CRP levels that will tell them if Pred is working or not. . But I said nothing for fear of being " a know it all"
But 2 hrs later they realised the ESR levels told them nothing and i had more blood taken and a further wait, saw an ophthalmologist who checked my eyes throughly all ok, and eventually got CRP levels back and they were 30. . . . . 3 days ago they were 86 so I was happy with that Pred is doing it's job, they decided to keep me on same 40mg of Pred and to take it easy and come back straight away if I experience any further vision probs.
she is not convinced I have GCA at all . . . And said the biopsy is most probably going to come back negative due to STERIODS and time time involved, but it's a box that needs ticking . . Her words!
I'm keeping an open mind and just doing as I'm told and being sensible about what I'm doing I'm not one for resting up. . . I'm. Busy outdoor girl, but realise I need to rest up and let my body catch up so to speak. . .
So there you have it . . . Do I don't i. . .time will tell won't it . . Thanks every one for you kind words . . . We are all on this journey together . . . Far better than alone. . . X x
