Firstly,  Happy New Year  and crossing fingers for a creative  2023.  Then
info to share:  Wednesday I ended up at hospital checking out blurry eye
and a few minor short lived headaches I had been having....neighbor more
proactive than I  and had urged immediate attention to symptoms.
Tentative  and almost certain diagnosis was  this Temporal Arteritis which
can cause blindness very quickly!  Put on strong steroid IV but after a day
was  allowed to go home for  family  Christmas,  and I'm probably to get
biopsy today to confirm.  Meanwhile taking big deal doses of prednisone,
and I may be on that  med  for a year or so.  So---condition hits mostly
women over 50,  Scandinavians in particular,  and  that's me for sure.
While this TA is not that common an occurrence,  you are all forewarned
just in case.  Just thought I would pass on the info.    Happy 2023,
 Carolyn Curran
