I am having a very difficult time. I was having slight head pain last week and increased my Prednisone from 20 - 25 with good effect. I had blood work done this past Thursday and sed rate was very low (but mine has always been in normal range) and my CRP was 6 (our lab normal is 8 or below). My CRP is the marker I go by. The week before it had been 13 so it had come down nicely. But yesterday and today I am in tears with the head pain, can't even get out of bed. I gave myself 30 yesterday thinking that would work but the pain is even worse today so gave another 30. I am baffled. I have never had to go higher than that with other flares and CRP was always elevated. BTW my diagnosis was last August after PMR for a year. Suggestions? Probably more Prednisone. Thank goodness I got a phone call yesterday to see the GCA specialist this coming Tuesday so that wasn't as long a wait as I expected.
Thank you in advance, I will read all replies but might not be able to reply back right away,
