Katie and Oliver cat and I would like to thank everyone on here for all your help and support and advice since I was diagnosed in August. I don't know how I would have coped with this on my own without everybody's experience and advice.
The next step for me in this illness that doesn't stop giving is stomach pain which has arrived just before Christmas
since Friday I've been having terrible stomach pain yes from the stomach and also lower abdomen cramps feeling tingly and sick. I went to the doctor on Monday and he said it was because of the steroids. And asked if I had been taking omazeprole an hour before taking the steroids which I hadn't been doing as I didn't realise I had to. I took omaz in the morning with food and the steroids and an aspirin. He seems to think that my stomach is reacting now. However I don't know if it's something else. My GCA is painful today my face on the painful side is bright red and I'm feverish and very weak. Ive got a stress-free Christmas on my own with my two cats as I wanted but the food is still in the fridge.
Any advice on the stomach pain would be gratefully received the doctor has given me omaz to take now an hour before anything in the morning and to take one also at night and I've also got Gaviscon.
Thank you thank you thank you so much!
