i am 66 years old, 3 years ago I was in hospital for arterial artheritis and was given a high dose of steroids which did after a few weeks clear the problem, however I now have constant headaches, although not the very intent pain in the head I did have, but my vision does cause me a few problems now and again, I do have stiff neck and sometimes pain in my jaw, I don't want to waste the doctors time, as otherwise I am healthy, can you please advise me. thanks tricia
Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.
You definitely need checked for this again Tricia
This could be a recurrence of the arteritis
