Well, the tingling i was experiencing got worse, became difficult to swallow, and blood pressure thru the roof..
Due to fear of stroke with gca I reluctantly went to the Er
no significant signs of stroke, but due to pmr situation ordered mri
Before I went they gave me potassium pills as it was dangerously low, which could have been causing these symptoms.. Said bananas arent enough, and since I take a diuretic I need to supplement.
Then came the shock, as mri showed moderate possibility of ms, due to white plaques
Would fit the parasthesia,
Will see neurology next week, and they did say it could be something else, as had mri mra in sept which I was told was fine. But now I am questioning if that report was misread
So now, with extra potassium on board and expecting call from my rheumi in am
I am going to try to get some sleep .. Think good thoughts that what the radiologist saw was not what the neurologist will see next week.
Staying at 25 mg not going to decrease ,to much anxiety to do that, so now that I know it has nothing to do with tingling and i need not worry about gca blindness Though if ms i would have thought pred would have helped the symtoms... So maybe? its all about the very low potassium.
