my question is as follows;
diagnosed with temporal arteritis, symtoms are, head ake left side of head, face pain, left side, sore left eye, jaw sore, eye left side, temple sore, upper back, very sore from shoulder to shoulder. sweating and feel weak, no energy, mental or physical,
i'm on 40 mgs. of prednisone, and elavil, 25 mgs.. my symtoms are not getting better, i'm more dragged out feeling, nothing is changing, as in getting better, i have taken prednisone since january.
as this is all new to me, is there any thing else a person could take for temporal arteritis, besides the prednisone.
i do not want to loose my eye sight over this and thats a big fear for me at this time..
yes, this is true, but i'm finding my eye is detertorating, when the ophthalmologist checked it, it was ok, no damage, but over the past two weeks, its getting worse, i was wondering, with temporal artertits, will the eye eventually, or slowly go blind, and can an ophthalmologist stop the detertorating..
thanks for your imput on this subject...
