Thank you wonderful people for being there for me and all your knowledge and support. I don’t think I realized how stressful the week was until I wrote it all down, especially the emotional stuff. My sister still questions if I really have GCA. She is helping me financially and she’s probably getting tired of it.
I’ll see how it goes today....no grocery shopping! I did get 3 hours sleep last night, so plan on napping today for sure. I’ve got the roaring and pounding tinnitus going on for more fun. So far no jaw pain, but haven’t had my favorite bacon for breakfast, just oatmeal. Just a few little niggles and head feels like it’s made of lead. If I’m still not better I’ll take an extra 5 mg. this weekend and call my rheumy on Monday, stressful in itself trying to get ahold of him.
I never had visual symptoms, thank god, and don’t have anything unusual now except for some blurriness. It’s hard to tell what’s going on because I’m so nearsighted, with really old glasses and I get this bluriness sometimes when I’m tired.
I do take magnesium and it helps with cramps, I guess I just need more right now.
I’m grateful my sister is helping me for sure-but I wish she understood. Thankfully you-all do understand how scary GCA can be.
