I self Diagnosed GCA at 30. Labs indicated it however because of my age I was dismissed. Diagnosed instead with Fibromyalgia. I have every symptom of PMR. I have had blood clots and finally was reffered to Rheumatalogy.
I have been on prednisone on and off for degenerative disk disease which kept my symptoms at bay. I even had botox in my temperal muscles which helped until I had an allergic reaction and my face swelled for two months after.
Was anyone else diagnosed before the age of fifty and if so how old and how long did it take for a provider to diagnose and treat you?
