Diagnosed GCA PMR July 2015. Started on 60 mg....finished steroids end November 2016. In August dreadful pains started in hip...then moved to arms ...legs and by December pain in neck..shoulders...head and left eye. Blurred vision and was put back on 40 mg. I understand and recognise all my symptoms except for one. I find that I am starting to experience choking. It happens mostly when I am either sitting relaxing or in bed. Thankfully it only lasts a few seconds but it is frightening when it happens. Has anyone experienced this choking .....is it connected to GCA PMR or something else?
