It is 4 years plus since I was diagnosed with GCA [double vision etc,etc] and 2 years ago when down to 1mg of Prednisolone I had a relapse. I'm down to 2.5 mg of Pred now and continuing with a slow reduction. However, last year I had a seizure and had three more since. There is a research paper by P.L.Silbert and E.G. Stewart-Wynne entitled "Seizures and giant cell arteritis: what is the relationship?". I should very much like to learn whether any of our contributors have suffered seizures and GCA together? Also, have they done any research and could give me pointers to the sources if so.
If GCA can affect eyesight/optical nerve, can it also affect other brain functions?
