2 weeks ago I got my biopsy or rather, the non result. The bit of artery was insufficient, there was no inflammation in the bit they got but the lab says it was insufficient , also I had been on pred for 2 weeks prior to biopsy. My rheumatologist has decided that no inflammation means no risk so is cutting pred by 5 mg a week for the next month then slowly. Initially I was delighted that he was confident and that meds Were being greatly reduced. Now, not so sure.
So far I am down 10mg, dreadfully scalp sweating, general aches and pains particularly between the back of my neck and head. Absolutely exhausted and weepy.
Please tell me this levels off soon?.
