Newly diagnosed with GCA (30/10/17), I've just changed GP Surgeries to and they are concerned about my blood pressure. I have read on the forum that Pred. can raise this and the dr. was aware that it could have this effect. He wanted me to wear a 24hour monitor or buy my own monitor and record 3 results, twice a day for 2 weeks. If I can buy a reliable home monitor i'd rather do this - but which to buy? It's a minefield. Does anyone else own one that they personally are happy with? Would you beable to let me know your experiences please.
Thank you, Ang
