Delightful appointment with my GP.
He was stunned by my collapsed discs and the osteoarthritis, offered to prescribe a shopping trolley, but thought a Dopler scan of large blood vessels in legs may be more use. So off to Dopler tomorrow, (arteritis /vasculitis limiting my walking ability?), Opthalmologist on Thursday (annual checkup) and back to him on Friday. He is not impressed with recent communication from Rheumy who it seems was annoyed that I had upped the pred myself in January. She wants me off Pred, He says 'no way'. I think he plans to find me someone who knows about PMR, or help me find someone. Told me to take whatever Pred I feel I need until we get the CRP back down, and not to go making a Rheumy Apt until we have talked. Also started on Orocal, and my anaemia is going to be investigated.
So there it is, I plan to stay on my current 6 1/2mg dose until friday if I can cope and then I will be asking for advice from all you amazing and caring people.
