Just back from follow up at GP - I have a biopsy on Thursday then rheumatologist next week.
Since last week jaw pain and pins and needles right side of face and pain around temporal artery.
I was taking 40 mg of prednisilone for the last 3-4 weeks now back up to 50mg today !
My 83 year old mam very ill and I'm stressed but GP doesn't buy into stress affecting the GCA .
Cholesterol gone up with the steroids so he's changed my statin.
BP rising - does it get better - no - he noticed my round face as well!,
Moan over - get on with it
Thanks for listening
