I was diagnosed with GCA 8 weeks ago and am responding well to treatment. All symptoms disappeared within hours of taking medication. My symptoms started with what I thought was a headache in late March. What I didn't realise was that I actually was suffering much earlier having had a very sore jaw since October 2014. I notice that my jaw although much better continues to get very sore when chewing food items like almonds. Does anyone else suffer with this and is it possible I may have had some permanent damage in this area? What complicates this issue slightly is that in July 2014, I had a tooth pulled rather clumsily and wonder if some of my continuing problem is connected to this extraction.
