I had my appointment with the Rheumatologist today as part of the suspected GCA diagnosis.
Glad to say I dont have GCA!
However, she said she doesn't think I have PMR but Rheumatoid Arthritis following a physical examination and symptoms.
Wondered if others have had the same conversations following a Rheumatology appointment.
I've had a steroid injection today, been put on sulfasalazine and told to stop Pred with immediate effect. There is a history of RA in my family (grandmother). Would appreciate any advice/opinions please. I must say even though I've been on 60 mg Pred the past 12 days I have been struggling with pain etc.
Thanks in advance.
