Well finally saw neuro Opthomologist this morning and after four months of no answered he confirmed that I have Ggca and pmr. He confirmed by the symptoms and he told me exactly everything that I have read here, he even knew about the written guidelines before I mentioned them. He is only one of five Dr.s in the state of Florida and well informed with the slow taper etc. he referred me to a Rheumy in Miami who specializes in Gca and pmr and recommended a temporal biopsy, explaining it may be neg but still thinking it necessary. He also gave me additional script for pred and told me that should I develop any head or scalp to automatically take 60or even up to 80 mil of the pred. He said never be afraid to up to he dose myself even if only in 5increments. This man was so compassionate and thorough that I had tears in my eyes. He said I did not need any MRIs, that all of my symptoms were conclusive and now I'll finally get on the correct dose and have a Dr who knows what this is all about. To everyone here I told him this site has been a godsend, a real help in every way and he also thought it was wonderful.
