I would like to start by thanking everyone's contribution on this community. I was google searching about TA as I want to understand my mothers condition more and I am glad to get some very good advice here.
My mother is on steroid because of temporal arterities. However, from looking at what is being said here it seems a bit strange that she was never asked to have a biopsy to confirm the condition. They did blood tests and after getting the results she was put on very high dosage for a couple of weeks. This has been reduced since and she is on 15mg now but she was never asked to do a biopsy to confirm the condition. Is this common?
