Like others (I imagine), I get rather anxious over the long Christmas and New Year break. This morning, just for a moment, I thought I had double vision. I was in the middle of cleaning the oven and leaning over the sink cleaning the shelves. I sat down and it went off very quickly.
I am 83 and was dx in Jan 2013 and am down to 9.5mg Pred. Can anyone suggest an alternative to going to hospital if this happened again ie just a suggestion, which MIGHT be caused by anxiety/imagination.
Would a dr be likely to increase the dose by, say 2.5mg in the first instance or would they be likely to go the whole hog and go back to 40mg or more? I agree this is a hypothetical question, but would be interested to hear any ideas. I am thinking of something to tie me over until there was likely to be a consultant to contact.
I have Parkinson's disease as well.
