Hi All - wondering if anyone has had symptoms of both bloating and GI gassiness both in stomach and intestines as a precursor to the GCA? My GCA came on very suddenly in Feb 2016, but prior to onset, I recalled I had unusual gassiness for about 4 weeks prior which I had been trying a lot of different over the counter meds for. Then the GCA hit and I forgot about it until months later as it never recurred. I've been off pred now since April about 4 months now despite one flare 7/16. I feel ok, not sick but my labs 2 weeks ago showed ESR going up to 37 (always was 15 range once treated), and now this week that same gassiness is starting again, there all the time. Likely no correlation, and still not too worried as no other symptoms, but thought I would see if anyone else noticed anything similar prior to their onset or diagnosis? Thanks!!
