After many months of normal? reducing since returning to 15mg I now find myself back at 7mg but with a pain increase from the bursitis/tendonitis in both shoulders. I have been suffering from unexplained headaches (sometimes very sharp and of 20 minute duration-left temple area but mostly across the front of the head lasting anything up to 24 hours). GP has tested sinuses,chest,eyes and ENT, but referred to local hospital in case of GCA. An emergency blood test at Hospital- ESR was 50 and CRP 16 ( both normal range for me). Duty doctor referred results and symptoms to my rheumy who stated that, in the absence of jaw pain and sight problems it was not GCA (Phew!). Eye test was the Snellen chart with glasses on and one eye closed--right eye was graded 6/6 but the left eye was 6/9. Subsequent full eye test at opticians demonstrated a 3 point drop in the left eye as opposed to 1 for the right since last year. Any thoughts as I have the impression they're hoping it (and I) will go away?
