I was diagnosed with GCA in May, my symptoms being mainly with jaw claudification and PMG stiffness. Having reduced well from 60mgs pred. to 6.5mgs with no problems I have now experienced a flare. I am now on 25mgs and jaw problems have disappeared, but I am left with arthritic type pain and stiffness in thumbs and soles of feet. Should I increase yet more? After the initial pain I can put up with my present problems if need be. Advice would be appreciated. Many thanks for continued support of this wonderful site.
