I have just had a Temporal Arteritis Biopsy against my GPs wishes but almost demanded by Surgeon hospital sent me to.....Operating Surgeon was very hesitant as he could not feel a pulse at all in the Artery and it was so small had to be marked out on my head with Doppler Ultra Sound - Artery above ear instead of in Temple???? Wat does all this mean??? Prednisone does stop headache almost immediately but not for that long. I do not have results yet.... Thanks if you can make something of this??
