GCA was diagnosed in May of 2016. I was started on a regime of 60mgs.of prednisone, reduced by 10 mgs to 30 mgs in August of 2016. I thought I understood that the eye concerns were addressed and I wouldn't have the TA symptoms again. reading these posts show me that flares are a common occurrence . I'm back on 60mgs. And greatly discouraged with the blurred eyesight and the ballooning body from the Pred. Will I ever beat GCA or will it continue forever??
