I am new to this disease so any advise would be helpful. Only 6 months ago after a period of intense stress and overwork it came on very suddenly, with severe headaches, abdominal pain, loss of eyesight and memory, and ability to string two words together. After 8 weeks of being told it was migraines I was diagnosed with vasculitis. After an angiogram I was told it wasn't cerebrally based, although my symptoms seem to be similar to other cerebral postings, but no further diagnosis has been made. I have been put on steroids and my eyesight and mental functions have returned. I have now reduced from 60mg to 8mg of Panafcourt but due to stress, I am sure, have had a bit of a relapse and am advised to increase my does again. At one stage my neurologist indicated it might be possible to recover from this disease. Can anyone tell me if this is possible or are we condemned for life?
