In August, 2003, I was diagnosed with temporal arteritis & polymyalgia
rheumatica--I took 1 dose of 100mg of prednisone, followed with 2 weeks
of 80 mg. When first diagnosed, I had partial loss of vision in left eye, an off-the -chart CRT & aches across my shoulders. Within 2 weeks my vision was pretty much back to normal, & I started weaning down on the
prednisone. After 2 years I was finally off the prednisone, only to have a
flare up of the aches & alot of left eye vision loss.
I have been told by my opthomoligist that my optic nerve was dead--then
I had another opthomoligist tell me that my left eye was not my bad eye--the right one was & that the optic nerve is not dead. Now I' m wondering
what's going on--why my vision really is so much worse in my left eye &
good in my right eye!!! Then I was told that I really did not have a flare
up. I am very confused!!!!!!!!!
