Hi to you all I have TA and now on 15mg pred.
I sometimes have a pain that begins in the left middle of my back that grows in intensity and spreads up to my jaw and la sts about 30 mins until it begins to ease. After my last episode my gp took bloods to check esr etccand had an ecg after which the gp sent me to hospital where I had another ecg and blood test for blood clot. All were clear. I read a post from a lady who had the same symptoms and eventually had op to repair aorta she has gca.
I dont know if I should be as worried as I am. I told my gp about this lady and he said tell my rheumy in april when I see her again. I j u st dont know how hard to push this.
