It has taken more than 2 years, to run down accumulating symptoms to be diagnosed with "some" form of arteritis.
Over time, have had arthritis knee replacements, carpal tunnel, trigger fingers
Pleural blood clots, DVT
2 transfusions for 6.0 anemia
Kidney stones leading to parathyroidectomy
Jaw and neck issues that dentist missed
Finally 2 ER trips for sharp head pain where I had the same Dr who found a sed rate of 94.
Prednisone relieved issues almost immediately. However, have switched to methotrexate IM. Incidence less common here, so I stumbled upon your site. So am white female, scotch Irish heritage, 72 yo. So....what's new and working?😅
