I have GCA and am currently on 7.5 mg of prednisolone. About 10 days ago I developed a rash around the left side of my waist which turned out to be shingles. I started to get headaches very similar to the GCA headache which I mentioned to the GP. She took some blood but I haven't had the results yet. Fortunately the headaches seem to have stopped now. I wondered if I should stay at 7.5mg until I am fully over the shingles or even go up a bit? I have been feeling thoroughly washed out and unwell but I think that is a side effect of the shingles.
Any advice welcome.
