Hi everyone, in an earlier post I mentioned that I was diagnosed with GCA last December. At that time my blood test marker was 95 however I had another test last week which was at 4. I very surprised and pleased about this but not complacent that this will last! I've been gently tapering my Pred following my Rheumatologist's plan from 50 mg and currently on 20 mg. Generally I'm feeling much better than I did two months ago. My muscle weakness is much less and I'm able to walk, work at the allotment and go on short bike rides without any adverse reaction.
I'd be very grateful for your thoughts and feedback about the ups and downs of GCA?
Thanks very much,
