After a very long weekend saw eye specialist today for suspected temporal arteritis aa I was complaining of blurred vision, low grade headache and CPR of 18.5. He was fairly confident that the visual disturbance is caused by rapidly developing cataracts and the rest down to my PMR.
He has asked me to stay on the 25mg pred for the next week and then take further bloods.
My GP put up the dose from 7mg to 25 over the weekend as a precation so all going well I will have been on this dose for 10-11 days. Any suggestions as to how I might go about reducing safely given the comparatively short time I would have been on 25mg?
I feel somewhat reassured and certainly less alarmed. I have also been referred to what sounds like a good Rhuemi,. Anybody from the South of Ireland attend a Dr. McCarthy in Cork?
25mg of pred is the highest tiI have been on , my 3rd day and I am not feeling so bad
Great to be able to run this past knowledgeable people and great to go into the consultation today as well informed as I was through this forum. Thank you
