I think I have had a relapse or as they call it now a "flair".
As well as the nasty shoulder pains I had really intense head pain on the right side yesterday.
It was reading Sheffieldjane's post in which you said I should maybe increase the preds.
I took 2mgs early evening yesterday and within two hours the shoulder and head pain had gone.
I wasn't aware that GCA caused shoulder and necks pains.
Thank you Sheffieldjane, I wouldn't have thought that the two were connected but something made me read your post again. I would not have taken the extra preds and carried on with the codeine.
