Can anyone give me a bit of advice as I don't seem to get the help or advice from my GP. I was diagnosed with Polymyalgia a year back, apart from a few aches here and there I have been relatively healthy. I have managed to get down to 4mg which I'm so happy about and due to see a rheumatologist my very first appointment I might add at the end of this month. The day I was diagnosed with Polymyalgia I could not move my jaw and almost all my limbs and was started on 20mg straight away and got my life back. My jaw problem as really never gone away, although it's no were near as bad as a year ago, it's always in the back ground. I have never had headaches, neither have I had vision problems, except that my eyes have deteriorated over the past year because of the steroids and I now need glasses. My question is can you have GCA without the headaches, vision problems? I have had the tender scalp over the past year, but that is sporadic. I am 47. Any help would be appreciated as I have gone to the doctors twice in 6 months with this jaw problem and been given antibiotics.....thanks
