Hi Guys having been here for sometime. I will try to keep this as short possible. I was diagnosed with GCA Nov 2015 put on pred at 60 mg. I was able to taper back faster than doc recommended in 18 months. Been of pred since april 5 2017. I had no flare ups or symptoms. I have back cycling again do 60 - 70 k a day. Last Sunday woke up with what i felt was a stroke went to emerg. they did blood work ekg ct scan they new i had GCA. I seemed recover in a couple of hours was able to walk talk etc there did not seem to be any lasting effects. they said i had a neurological disorder. Tuesday the same thing i was in walking distance to a hospital. Emerg. treated in as a Stoke in progress again the same work up as on Sunday this time it was a TIA I need to treat it as a minor stroke. In both cases my sed Cr portein were normal all my blood chem was normal no marks indicating a stroke
Has anyone else had a similar event happen to them and was it relate to GCA and how did you deal with it
