Pain is severe and all around/above right ear area and down neck just below ear. Also have herpes virus on mouth and nose. Does this sound like what anyone has who knows they have GCA? I do have blurry, but not double vision. Fever last night but not at doc today. BP was out of sight today, but I think because of pain. No loss of appetite or weight loss. Just trying to check symptoms with actual sufferers.
Hello Stripp... your symptoms could possibly mean GC I would assume since it is temporal most of the time. But sometimes you don't even have pain on the side of your head. Mine manifested itself on the left front of my head for a couple of months before it migrated to the temples a little bit. The blurred vision can come and go and was something that I had quite profoundly. I did lose my eyesight completely a couple of times... 3x and that's quite scary because it can stay permanent. The blurred vision never lasted more than about 15 minutes. Except for twice when my eyesight went completely out for a couple of hours. So let us know how the results come out and I want to wish you the best of luck. If you have anymore questions feel free to reach out. I hope I can help you. I am not a doctor but I can speak from experience. I'm going on three and a half years now with it and I've been off of prednisone for just over a year. I've had one stroke though.
