I was diagnosed with GCA after 5 months of painful symptoms (my Doctor has never heard of GCA). 4 months after the symptoms started (I had had no treatment for GCA at this point) I developed a pain in my right calf when I walked fast or uphill. It has not gone away (9 months later). Has anyone else had symptoms like this? I am wondering whether it is linked to the GCA which was untreated for so long. Steroids have not made any difference to it.
Interested in hearing your replies.
