Thank you again for all your knowledge and support.
I am really pleased to say that my friend saw another GP at her practice today who was very thorough. He has commenced her on Alendronic Acid. She then requested to be referred to Dr. Vinodh Devakumar Consultant Physician & Rheumatologist who is the Patron of the NW PMRGCA group and the GP is happy to do so!!!!
When she returned home from the doctors a letter awaited her - she is having the temporal artery biopsy on Thursday!!!
She sounds a lot better today and she said that the pain is improving. She mentioned that she has had the smell of natural gas since about two weeks before all of her other symptoms started. Has anyone else experienced anything like this?
I am just so pleased that things seem to be moving in the right direction for her.
