Hi. I am a 71 yr old female and before PMA and GCA was pretty fit, I thought! My diagnosis was confirmed by biopsi in 23 march. I have been on 70mg prednisolone till 15 may. Evidently I should have seen my gp after 1 month but nobody said! Anyway, saw rheumatologist on 15 may and she had a plan to decrease every 2 weeks by 10mg. I have just completed this 2 WK period but......and here is the problem, my mouth has become very tender on the outside and at the back of my throat, a horrid thick white fungal infection. Is this normal? I am touring the Dinglee peninsula , southern irleland in a motorhome and not due home till 14 June, when I have a blood test booked. I am going to try and see a local Dr tomorrow.
