Discussions that mention prednisone

Arthritis board


May be too late to help, but Temporal Arteritis (also known as Giant Cell Arteritis) causes the symptoms you describe. The blurry vision is a BIG concern too. Irreversible blindness results from GCA if not treated early with 60mg prednisone daily! I have GCA and the accompanying Polymyalgia Rheumatica. They are auto-immune inflammatory conditions and there is treatment.
