I am concerned that I might be experiencing a GCA flare. Diagnosed positive biopsy July 2013, reduced down to 5mg by May 2015 had headaches and neck pain in October when trying to reduce to 4mg, went up to 6mg and was Ok but went up to 7mg in February when I got hip pain.
Now have some issues with eyesight and tenderness and a sort of tight feeling in both temples. Am going to see my doctor this morning and worried he is going to put me back to 60mg my original starting does - I had horrible side effects and really don't want to start all over again!!!
Would a lower dose be advisable?
