This past week, I am experiencing another GCA flare. I was taking 11mg of Prednisone when I began having severe headaches and pressure in my head. I was visiting with old high school friends in Bend, OR at a dear friend's home. I had to leave a day early as the headaches were so severe. I am now taking Prednisone 30mg, per rheumatologist, the past few days.
This morning, I am having pain around my Right eye, cheek, and right jaw. When I press on the sinus below my right eye, it is tender. Have any of you with GCA experienced these kind of symptoms?
I am so exhausted as sleeping poorly with increase of Prednisone.
My ESR and CRP have been elevated the past few months prior to these GCA symptoms. This is a challenging illness to say the least. Any input, encouragement is greatly appreciated.
Hang in there all you warriors. .For now, I will try to get some more sleep. Thanks for listening,
