Hi, I wonder if anyone else has had this problem? I have PMR and lately been suspected of havingTA. Having visited the opthalmist the suspicion is now low as he put my visual trouble down to cataracts. I have been asked to stay on the higher dose of 25mg pred until after blood test results as a precaution.
The thing is I also suffer from bronchiectisis and have developed a chest infection since Saturday, the antibiotics have not clicked in yet and I have had bloods taken this morning. The dr. thinks this infection could also put the markers up so clouding the picture.
Since i had pneumonia at Christmas I am very anxious to avoid any more infections.
I have been referred to a rheumatologist but await an appointment In the meantime I will have been on the higher dose for 19days what to do?
