I started at 60 mg Predisilone and am now on 45 mg. How do you know if you are getting a flare or a reaction to the reduction - ie your body doesnt like having less steroid? Also - I think I have been suffering from Sinus problems but I think I read that GCA symptoms can include sinus - does anyone know about that. I had a good menthol inhale last night and no headache this morning. My cheeks felt sore so I guess it might be sinus causing the headaches. In the run up to GCA I had sinus problems but a consultant could not find any problem. My last CRP was only 10 so that was good and ESR normal. I was amazed. Have had trouble getting my blood results in a timely manner - still havnt got the one from a flare two weeks ago. Many thanks for all the help I get on this site esp. from Dorsetlady who is so kind.
