Recently diagnosed with GCA November - awaiting urgent biopsy but took myself off to Spain for a week.
Enjoyed the rest and found that taking meds at 0530-0600 I managed everything .
Returning home I'm a quivering wreck !
Tears daily, awful taste in my mouth , palpitations dry skin and hair.
I put about half a stone on in a a week - I've only been home 2 days and I've lost 4 lbs !!!
I'm on 40mg pred till my next appt on January 14 - going for a slow reducing.
Will all these side effects ease ??
