What a horrible week, very stressed, crying, have a UTI infection. Rheumatologist was so unhelpful. When I went he was so dismissive, wouldn't listen to me about my symptoms. Said I couldn't possibly have GCA, no point in biopsy cos on steroids. GP put me on a dose of 50 mg, I reduced to 40mg as advised. He said to go down to 30mg immediately as I needed to get off steroids, left feeling very upset. Went down to 30mg but am temporal headaches, jaw pain neck pain and some in my arm. Feeling unwell. Is this because of reduction or infection or stress. Really do not know what to do, feeling so agitated, can't relax, sleep or anything. Where can I go from here? Advice from you lovely people again please.
