I already sent this once but it disappeared, so I hope you don't get it twice.
I usually see a very nice dentist who specialises in dental phobia. Even so, the last time I went to see him I had quite a bad headache afterwards and ended up taking an extra 5mg that night.
Now he has had to refer me to the dental hospital about a polyp in my cheek and I've just been given an appointment for Friday at 4pm. My dentist says he doesn't think the polyp is anything to worry about, but I'm really scared about the appointment and the possible treatment.
I'm currently alternating between 5mg and 4.75mg Pred which I take as enteric coated (except the .25mg) at 8am. It's for GCA and mild PMR in 2015. I think I will need to increase the dose, but by how much and when? I'd very much welcome any advice. Would a one-off diazepam help reduce the problem, or is that best avoided? It might be too late to get it now anyway.
