I'm wondering if anyone here has had or knows first hand of someone who has had abdominal pain as a symptom of GCA ? I have had chronic abdominal pain for 7 or 8 years but when the GCA flared in February and through March the abdominal pain changed, no longer responded to my usual pain meds. I ended going to the ER on two occasions. Finally, being in tears 24/7 my GP ordered injections which helped. The pain got better, but I had also increased my Prednisone for the flare. Now as I had posted my CRP has been going up and last night gI had the headache back, and once again the abdominal pain has escalated. I know the literature mentions abdominal involvement but haven't heard of it otherwise.
