His doctor is a rheumatologist. He has an appointment on Monday, and I will be allowed to go with him. I am hoping that this group can help me ask the doctor the right questions. I have contacted his internist and asked that he confer with the rheumatologist about this condition to determine if he needs to change his diabetes medication.

I just finished reading the story about John’s wife and great diagnosis of giant cell arteritus. That will be first question when we see the doctor. My husband has experienced jaw pain a couple of times recently and has said he thinks his vision has changed slightly. He has not had headaches. A few years ago, the ophthalmologist notice something behind his eye and suggested that he have an MRI or CT (I can’t remember which). His internist was not concerned with the results at this time. I will mention this to the doctor.
