Tapering and methotrexate

I used steroids and methotrexate over a year treating giant cell arteritis. These meds controlled the arteritis but led to adrenal deficiency. I visited the Mayo Clinic and Mayo prescribed Actemra to replace steroids and methotrexate. Actemra has kept me symptom free and my adrenal function has returned to normal.

Was it difficult to get an appointment at Mayo Clinic?
