Hello and thanks to everyone for the fantastic help and support on this forum. I wonder whether anyone might shed light on symptoms I'm experiencing, which I assume is connected with GCA / steroid use. I have been diagnosed with GCA since February 2015, and am currently on 20 - 25 mg Prednisolone; my consultant has been trying to reduce below 20 mg, but I keep experiencing intermittent mild temple pain and more alarmingly swollen eyes - they feel half closed a lot of the time, and under pressure, although that again is intermittent. My blood markers are excellent, and have been for a while, which is perplexing to him, given my symptoms. I have had an eye test, which showed only that my eye pressures were at the high end of normal (the optician mentioned that steroids tended to increase eye pressure). I'm not sure whether to increase the Pred or whether that will just exacerbate the symptoms. Thanks for listening and any thoughts?
