I have GCA and was doing well, reducing from 60 to 45 Pred. The rheumy doubled my Azatroprine (Pred sparing) and I don't know if it is the reason why but I got a serious flare and all my old symptoms back. I cut the Azatroprine down to two per day and I seem better but it's hard to tell whether it's just the GCA or the Azatroprine. My rheumy is very good but off ill at the moment but I have an appointment with him on Wednesday. I have been on high dose Pred for nearly two months and the plan was to cut down further. It's frustrating to have no point of contact and I just hope I am doing the right thing. Was told I could contact mt GP but they seem to know little about this illness. Havnt got a headache but a stiffness and pressure across my temple. It doesn't help my case that I am very inclined to do too much. We had to move the Queens 90th birthday street party into our house on Sunday which resulted in a lot of work. It's so difficult isn't it.
