I was diagnosed with PMR about 5 weeks ago. I had a remarkable response to 15 mg prednisone. I did start about a week ago with 5 mg at 2 am and 10 mg at 8 am and this helped my morning pain and stiffness.
I am to be travelling Friday from Canada to Dublin with siblings.
I have been having some headaches esp temporal and it can be either side. I also have had ( about 2 year duration) tongue pain when chewing. Only about 2 times a day and resolves. It occurred to me if this could be CGA. I can call my doc in about 12 hours for assessment. How necessary is it to go to ER at this time. I am having such a hard time with my blood pressure on 15 mg of Pred. I am getting anxious that my trip will need to be cancelled and saying that I do not want to be in another country and risk losing my vision.
My husband is away in USA skiing with the family and I feel like I need opinions. I am a primary care nurse practitioner.
Thanks in advance
