Giant Cell Arteritis Concerns after One-sided Jaw Pain
I was diagnosed with RA in 2011. Then in 2018, I was diagnosed with PMR. I’m settling at 6mg Prednisone right now. Lower dose kicked my behind.
My concern is severe one sided jaw pain. I went to urgent care today and received a shot to hopefully relieve the inflammation and pain. I was advised to see my Rheumy if not improved in 24-48 hours. After doing some research, I find myself concerned about the possibility of GCA. Has anyone dealt with this issue and can you offer some advice?
