My latest bloods say my differential white cell count is abnormal but stable. The lymphocyte count is down and so is the monocytes. My ESR is better at 34 but the CRP is worse at 16.9. Not sure what that all means. I have GCA. I have been really ill for over a week and my rheumy has been off too but I have an appointment tomorrow and hope to get some answers. Feeling really fed up as before that I was doing well and reducing Pred from 60 to 45 gradually but now put myself back to 50. I am almost as bad as I was to start with. Forced myself to really rest yesterday to see if that might help. Was a bit better but not much. Woke every hour last night and got up at 4 am in desperation.
