I am due for a head MRI scan, and also waiting for ENT and eye appointment, re suspected WG, my ANCA came back negative I suspect due to the steroids I take ?
Whilst waiting for all these test my symptoms were getting worse so my Dr. has increased my Pred. from 20mgs to 25, [ 2 days ago ] and my symptoms are getting better, my eye's are not so blood shot and sore and not bulging so much, my headaches are better, although I still have some bleeding from the sinus's, and nasal crusting, I'm also hoarse.
My question is............. could the higher dose of Pred. scupper the results of the MRI, ENT, and eye test ? has anyone else had the same tests whilst taking Pred.?
I am so fed up with waiting for these test, and feel if they were done quicker before high doses of Pred are given a diagnosis would be got.
I was diagnosed 16 years ago with GCA and wondering if WG is secondary to the GCA, maybe I have both together?
