So since the tapering down this past Thursday I started getting achy on Sat. but nothing to bad, by yesterday couldnt walk & pain in neck began getting worse, this morning neck in agony and groin now worse so I feel as though this is where it all started two months ago. Having slight head pain and it is so difficult to know that I was feeling 100% pain free up to the day the Dr. tapered me down to 5mil from 20. I go this morn for the blood work and not sure what he will do if they are normal or not to high.
I feel miserable and want to feel good again as we all do. I do feel some change in my eyes, I cannot read as long and things are slightly blurry but when I tell him I need to get on the higher does he's claiming that without definite proof of it being GCA he wont prescribe it and by the time I keep changing Dr.'s I could go blind so at a loss as to what to do. If I go to an emergency room at hospital will they automatically put me on the pred at the right dose? Will they listen to me and treat me or just refer me out to a Dr., Im so afraid that time is of the essence and all the Dr wants to do is wait and wait for test results and wont act on my symptoms.
