Hello all I have gca/pmr as far as I know...could you nice people explain what happens to class a blip as a flare? ...I can't get lower than 10mg and haven't for about a year, I don't seem to get many of the classic symptoms I have read about, I sometimes get a slight tenderness on scalp but that usually clears quickly. So far twice this year I have had silver triangle type circles around my eye for a few minutes (happened yesterday again) so I increased to 30mg and rang specialist nurse who advised me a reduction plan over 2 weeks to get back to 10mg...is this classed as a flare? as I had no other symptoms of any kind...had my eyes checked day before and all was ok....just need a little clarification on this please on my last crp bloods 2 weeks ago it was 10th. Thank you
