Hi . Would be glad of some help please . Reduced from 12mg to 11and a half over a week then down to 11mg . Felt very unwell ,very tired and stiff . Had a niggling pain in my right temple, not there all the time ,just intermittent. Doctor saw me immediately and took a blood sample.and said if I had problems with my vision I had to take 40mg and go straight to a&e
She phoned me the next day to say my blood results were ok for GCA , but I had raised heamaglobin.
I have to have another test on Tuesday.
Does anyone know what this means ?i have looked at Dr Google and it all sounds very scary . Sorry to ramble on . Don't think I can cope with anything else .
Forgot to say I increased my pred back to 12 and a half . Pain and stiffness has gone, and I'm feeling back to normal today
