Hello all looking for some more of your expert advice please I have GCA and PMR about 6 weeks ago I had visual disturbances and was advised by specialist nurse to go up to 30mg of prednisolone for 2 weeks from 8mg then reduce by 5mg per week until I reach 10mg and to stay there till my next rheumy appointment, which isn't for another 10 days, I have always had thinish skin but about the time of increase of prednisolone I noticed the veins in my forearms were actually sticking up very pronounced, my arms feel very achy as well. ..also over the last 8 months I have lost the 2 stone that the pred helped me put on (with weight watchers ) so I am wondering if the pred is to blame? my arms look like a body builder does anyone know if the pred is to blame? or is it a symptom of gca/pmr? or something else going on? Many thanks
