Started on 60mg pred for two weeks and now to 50. CRP 55 down to 5 in a week.Last Thursday evening began severe gastric symptoms; upper and lower abdo pain radiating to kidney area. No diarrhoea or vomiting. Woken from sleep both Thurs and Fri night. Went to A&E Saturday a.m. No urine infection CRP 28 other markers slightly raised. Dr queried gallstones. Given Omeprazole and Buscopan. Pain and discomfort not really settling and two episodes of diarrhoea during the night. As I don't think this is particularly food related the only changes to other medication is stronger eye drops for glaucoma as pred has dramatically raised eye pressure.
What is happening? I am so new to this I feel a bit overwhelmed, particularly after there weeks of feeling so very well at long last. Are gastric symptoms common? Have read about live yoghurt and Manuka honey which will try. Has anyone else experience of GCA and glaucoma?
