Hi, I went to see my Rheumatologist last week ( a very nice man) and my O.H. came with me, so that if I forgot anything maybe he would remember. Anyway even though Dr. explained they didn't find anything in the biopsy, but also explained how it can be missed. However due to something in my blood tests and clinical observations he is confident that I did /do have Temporal Arteritis. I am now on 30mg a day of prednisolone , on a sliding scale from 60mg. My question is this, I still get pains in my head, but, nothing like at first. So how do you know when you have reached the right dose ? I'm still slightly confused !
