Without going over - yet again! - all the traumas relating to my PRM/GCA diagnosis, I'm currently on 40mg Pred as a precaution in case I actually have GCA. My original PMR symptoms were typical in that I had terrible pain and ended up by taking almost an hour to get out of bed. This responded to 15mg Pred almost immediately but about 3 weeks ago I had bad headaches which were accompanied by dizziness and loud ringing in my left ear. I'm pleased to say that the headaches have gone but I still have the ringing and a feeling of pressure in the head. I'm due to have another blood test a couple of days before I see the rheumatologist again on 3 August. I still don't know whether I should be concerned about these continuing symptoms or whether the fact that the headaches have gone - and my eye sight is still good - means that this could be a side effect of the steroids.
Is there anyone out there who has experienced this and what was the outcome?
