My Story . Had flu symptoms 6 weeks ago lucky a gp ran some blood test! Recalled as ear levels were 63! Admitted to Hospital put in 80mg Pred. Discharged on the Monday afternoon the following day returned to A n E as I had Dvt symptoms Sure enough I had a dvt! I gather the dvt was caused by being on 5 days of High Steriods, hence, I said I'm not taking them, until if had been confirmed as a diagnosis which is finally was
by Ultra sound and my next ear had not reduced in fact went up to 83! Now taking 40mg. But scared another dvt night happen ... yes, a dvd is a rare Steroid Risk.
Hate how I feel .. giddy .. headaches .. tinnitus .. night sweats .. not had a good sleep for weeks .. with worry about the weight gain immensely ... not sure why my symptoms have not called down ? Not seeing Rheumatology until Jan ..
Two weeks before this started I fell over .. nothing broken, but body took a big jolt down 2 large steps .. I'm sure this was the trigger? Any feedback how to cope with this GCA never heard of it before, says it's rare? I'm trying Apple Cider Vinager and a anti inflammatory diet .. Will Try Anything !
