I've really tried to stay positive, but have lost it this time! Having got my Pred down to 5mg, suddenly last week headaches and jaw pain set in. GP increased dose to 15mg and all was fine for a week then pain started again. Have now increased to 17mg and headache has gone but lack of sleep has returned and general feeling of depression and self pity back! Feel like I am stuck on a spiral and can't get out. Weight gain is one of my problems and I wonder how I am ever going to sort this if I have to keep increasing the meds. PMR seems under control, it's the GCA that's causing me all the trouble. I know that I am blessed and have had my eyesight protected. Sorry to moan but I know that I am safe to do it on here!
