I would like to travel from Ontario to Scotland this summer but I'm not sure whether this is a good idea. I was diagnosed (sort of, negative temporal biopsy) with GCA and PMR in Oct 2015. I started on Prednisone 40 mg and have been tapered by my Rheumatologist. I am currently on 12.5 mg. The tapering recently has been each new dose for a month. I have been feeling well and have been able to hike and ski almost as much as before my diagnosis. I do get tired more easily and do get some muscle pain with the exercise but it doesn't last long. So I really don't know how I will be in July when I want to travel. I want to make sure I can get insurance so that if I am not feeling well that I will be able to recover the cost of the flight. As well, I would like to have coverage for emergency medical care. One insurer I checked with said that at my age (65) my preexisting condition would have to have been stable for 6 months for them to cover me for emergency medical care. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks so much.
