Went to see a new GP on Wednesday about my bumping heart and tinnitus. Checked blood pressure, far too high. Put me on meds, loads better today! Been to see the specialist today, all my blood tests were normal! Keeping me on 20mg of pred for now, new appointment for 24th July, after our cruise. Feel so much better knowing that the steroids are doing their job!
Other good news was that my hubby went to see the doc this week after suffering from ulcers all over his mouth. The GP fast tracked him a referral , they rang this morning with an appointment to see a cancer specialist. NOT cancer, yippee! He thinks it is Lichen Planus that can be caused by stress. Strangely enough, it started around the same time as I was diagnosed with GCA. He was very worried about me at the time, and when speaking to the Maxilliary facial specialist, he said that could well have been the cause. He has to have a biopsy done before we go on our cruise ( 2 weeks tomorrow), but all seems to be heading in the right direction. We both feel pretty damn goo today. Wowser, let's hope the bubble doesn't burst.
