Hi, have learnt a lot from you lovely people on this site, and now I have a question. It was first thought from the face ache and raised ESR 30, I had GCA, and was put on 60mgs of Pred, the GP and neuro now believe I haven't got GCA, so more blood tests on the cards. I have pain between ears and nose, blurred vision, numbness in my fingers and toes and sweat that much that my hair drips.
I've had an x-Ray on my head but nothing shows up said the ENT consultant. The GP noticed the lining of my nose was very red and prescribed ointment which took away the redness. But the pain is at the back of my nose. My sinuses are clear. I have a slight cold at the moment but last night I was in so much pain In my face I didn't know what to do and I was up at 4.00am.
After a while, being upright, I found the mucus from the cold was coming away from the back of my nose and the pain was easing a bit. The experts said my sinuses were clear. I have got a very tender area at the back of my nose and it's as if I'm imagining it because no-one can see anything wrong.
Has anyone else had these symptoms, it's made me a prisoner at home because of the pain, the steroids did help but they want me off those to do more blood tests, and on coming down, the pain is back. I've had this since last July.
Any advice would be very much appreciated, thanks.
