Hi everyone. I'm a member over on the fibro U.K. Page. I'm asking here for some help on behalf of my mum. She has pmr and recently diagnosed with GCA. The GP has her on 60mg steroids daily and she's having Terrible side effects - racing heart, dizziness, extreme breathlessness. It's incredibly sad for me to see her struggling to get oxygen 😔 Her Doctor won't lower her prednisone. She can breathe easier when it's lowered but then the pmr symptoms return with a vengeance! And the GCA doesn't appear to have abated at all on prednisone. Does anybody please have any thoughts to share on her symptoms or not responding to prednisone? Is there a better or different alternative med someone has found helpful? Thank you for reading.
