Since being diagnosed last October with GCA and prescribed Prednisolone, I've had breathing difficulties and fluid retention for which I am being treated but not very successfully - are the two connected? Does any other member have these difficulties. I've Googled and while there is no established evidence that Prednisolone can cause these symptoms there is anecdotal evidence of this effect. I am tapering and currently down for the second time to 15mg and am also on a drug trial of Roactemra which is a steroid sparing. I've had 2 xrays, a CT scan and a peak flow test at the hospital but apart from mild chronic bronchitis (which I've never had before) nothing has shown up.
Any advice would be most welcome.
