Hi, I was diagnosed in January this year with GCA, am currently on 10mg pred a day, never been on higher than 15mg. Some days I feel ok, head doesn't hurt, don't feel so drained, but for the last week or so I have felt very tired and head has been hurting bit. I work 4 mornings a week (computers, which won't help), so I sometimes have nap in the afternoon. Today I felt fine when got to work, full of energy, then I suddenly felt woozy headed, and had sudden throbs of pain in my head, enough to make me exclaim out loud 'ow'! The throb went off and then I felt slightly nauseous, emotional and still light-headed. Luckily I'm home now and am going to rest. I appreciate that others of you have probably asked this before, but when do you know a phone call to dr would be a good idea. I mean, we all have good days and bad days, yeah? I guess the obvious answer would be 'if you feel the need to ring, then that is the right time'. ! Sorry if I'm rambling, just wondered what others thought...?! <ee>
