Hi, I'm Karen.
I was diagnosed with Gca Feb 2016. I am on 50mg of steroids daily. I'm unable to decrease due to flares. I was on methotrexate for a couple of months and they didn't work with stopping my immune system. I'm now on azathioprine 50mg to stop my immune system and they aren't working. They are saying I might have to have biological medication but they are unable to getting funding for Gca . I feel absolutely horrendous and look horrendous. I don't go out anymore because of how I look. I look in the mirror and I don't know who is looking back at me. Husband not interested. If possible any advice would be really really appreciated. I'm so low. Thank you.
