Was it just me, or was anyone else upset with the PMR/GCA portrayal on this TV show. Aunt Joan seemed to be suffering a slight stiffness in her shoulders and a bit of blurred vision. After Doc Martin got the results from a biopsy, (he did in his surgery!). She was told she would be put on Prednisolone which would start being reduced after 2 weeks and continue to reduce for a year. It was all treated so lightly. After the time I have had coming to terms with the fact that I have a serious illness & explaining my pain to people around me, I now feel that people will think I'm exaggerating.
