Hi all ,
Biopsy week gone Thursday - results yesterday at rheumy appointment.
Negative- which I probably expected having been on 40-50 mg prednisilone since November for ' probable ' GCA .
Dr decided as it was negative she's going for a quicker taper !
10mg a fortnight till I get to 20mg . Then 5 mg a fortnight till 10mg then 2.5 mg.
I voiced my concerns but she said she wanted bloods done if any flares before going back up.
I'm uneasy about this as I had to go up to 50 after jaw pain on chewing - her response was did I think I'd read too much and perhaps imagined it !!!!!!!!!
I'm already thinking of changing dr to a nearer hospital as I have quite a journey for ten minutes of her time.
