I had an upsetting incident with a family member at home last night, and I was very upset by it. I spent over 2 hours sobbing nonstop alone in my room before eventually calming down and going to sleep.
Now today my left temple and eye (the side I have always experienced my GCA symptoms), is very painful. It's not anywhere else in my head, just specifically that temple and eye. I'm very worried I might have triggered a flare from the emotional stress.
Is that possible though? Has this happened to anyone else before?
I'm currently tapered down to 6mg of Prednisone, although I took an extra 1mg with my breakfast to see if it would help.
