I haven't said much on here but do try to keep up to date with other posts. By way of background, I was diagnosed with GCA in early April 2015 and because I had jaw issues, was started on 50 mg of prednisolone. I also take alendronic acid, low dose asprin, lansoprazole and adcal. I am now down to 7 mg prednisolone and thus far have had no flares, nor have I developed a moon face. I have only put back on the 7 pounds which I lost when I first became ill. I consider myself so very lucky to have coped so well so far. Now here is the "however". I am losing a lot of hair and there isn't much growing back. I have also noticed that since August, my voice has become very raspy and sometimes cuts out on me. The strange thing is that when I sing, I am able to sing above the raspiness and can produce a pretty decent sound. My question is does any of this sound familiar to anyone out there? These seem to be fairly insignificant complaints and I can live with them. I suppose I am looking for reassurance that it is all part of the treatment and will right itself in time.
