Hi diagnosed probable GCA November- up and down days , back up to 50mg pred this week after jaw pain on chewing .
Biopsy done today no problems - quick. Simple pain relief needed afterwards.
Surgeon passed a little gem on to me " I've never had a positive tab in 20 years" the rheumatologist should do these themselves if they think they're that important!
I'm seeing rheumatologist next week and was hopefully reducing to 30 mg but cannot see that now after having to go up this week.
Is it always like this at the beginning?
