Coughs, colds and flu have really taken their toll this winter. Started on 60mg for GCA (positive biopsy) down to 7mg by mid November after 18 months and feeling fine, but since then have had two bouts of flu and at least 4 nasty cough / colds. Seem to be picking up everything going. Can't face the idea of uping the preds for non pmr/GCA symptoms. As I understand it we will all go through this vulnerable time until our own natural defences kick back in but in the meantime is there anything I can do?
