I have a question I can't find an answer to using Dr Google. If, like me, both GCA and PMR are present and a drop in Pred. dose from 17.5mg to 15mg causes a (possible) flare, does that flare affect both conditions, or can there be a flare in one and not the other?
It's only eight days since that drop but I'm getting symptoms unlike previous withdrawal symptoms - increased shoulder and neck pain, increased pain in the shoulder joints and upper arms, and I've started having trouble raising my arms to 90 degrees (never had any such problems before). I also have a constant dull headache and throbbing scalp.
My bosses are nagging me to get a GP appointment. Any advice is welcome before I commit, though.
