I have in the past year had a problem with my nose, which is very sore,dry and crusty, I also have bleeding which seems to be coming not only from the inside of the nose but higher up in the sinus's ? I wake every morning with a headache, and my mouth is so dry my tongue sticks to the roof of my mouth, the whites of my eyes are always bloodshot, and I have pins and needles in my feet and arms. I also have stage 3 kidney disease.
I should mention that I have GCA/PMR dignosed 15 years ago, and been on Prednisolone all that time, so could the Pred be masking something else ie WG ? as when I'm on a higher dose of Pred my symptoms seem better.
Is it the done thing to aproach my Dr. and say "I think I have WG" or should I just present him with the symptoms and take it from there.
Is it possible to have GCA and WG,?
