When diagnosed with GCA I had several of the symptoms. Put on 60mgs of pred and all cleared. Since dropping pred dose I keep getting a pain in the eye, at a point in the back of the head and in the side of the neck, sometimes together and sometimes individually. Apart from several flares my GCA symptoms are fairly under control, but these other pains are only eased with co-codamol. Does anyone else suffer similar problems. I'm thinking perhaps I could have got nerve damage when I had the biopsy. I would like to know what the knowledgable people on here think. I also get an irritation in the eye quite often for which I use eye drops.
