I was given 3000 mg. of Prednisone, 1000 mg per IV dose over a period of three days to treat what the opthalmologist thought was giant cell arteritis
, which I do not have, but probably eye stroke or small opening for the optic nerve. I became so ill I had to be hospitalized and just got out of several weeks in a nursing home. I am very weak, memory is poor, and I need much rehab. I believe that the dosage was way too high. What is your opinioin?
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: Yes, I lost the sight in my left eye rather suddenly Nov. 4, 2015, was several opth. who did the CRP and SR labs, which were negative in every case. Even the temporal artery biopsy was neg. One doctor thought I had an eye stroke, or rightness around the optic nerve.
