My Doctor just wrote to me after a consult with Rhuemetologist. Her n I feel my PMR is almost if not gone. BUT she said my labs are back up and she can't figure why since I am back p to 20mgs. She said the Rhuemetologist said GCA normally is under better control than PMR.
I have gone to Urgent care and the ER in this last week with cardiac stuff. I was given more metoprolol and in a few days my heart has stopped trying to leave my chest.
She said she want to run a barrage of tests on me as she is worried she is missing something. I came to her already diagnosed so she wants to make sure what is going on.
I almost always have a dull ache over my right temple and when I get the occasional jaw ache it is also on the right side. I am perplexed as my C-reactive protein has been rising with the last three tests. My WBC is always high and we just assumed it was the prednisone..
Any thought ...oh n I went and saw my eye physician for my aching right eyeball and I checked out fine no rise in pressure stayed the same a tad high but down from before which he blames on the prednisone.
Other than that life is pretty good...
