Had my appointment with ophthalmologist today, results very slight pressure in right eye seeing me again in 6 wks. .
However, this was the same lady I saw in A and E a few weeks ago,
She said I had a chat about you with the rheumatologist the next day and we both are really not sure you have GCA. . . . You are too young (51) . . . . And you are not displaying any typical symptoms. . .
By this time I was thinking. . What the hell do I have then.? The best thing I could come up with was, but what about the inflammatories in my bloods CRP 113 is that not a good indicator along with everyone displays diseases in different ways and the fact I responded so well to the Pred. .
Her reply was Pred is a complete masker it does not cure anything most people react to Pred like you did.
Me. . So what else could the high CRP be then, . . Her. . That's where your GP comes in they do all the detective work.
So where on earth do I go from here. . Do I insist my GP looks further into all this or I do accept I have GCA and eventually wean myself off the Pred. . I'm blinking confused now.
I should just add my white blood cells are way above normal limits I can post my blood results if anyone is interested in helping do some detective work. . . Ha ha
Confused . Com Lisa . . I've not lost my sense of humour. . . Yet! X
