  1. Re: New Here - Possible GPA with Nasal involvement

    Thanks me2, I thought it might have been you, but couldn’t find the thread. Hopefully it never comes to surgery.
  2. Re: New Here - Possible GPA with Nasal involvement

    Hereís the thing. Your specialist, no matter how good, is not living your life and experiences. If your sleep is being interrupted, and you have a collapsed nostril, there may be sinus issues...

    Re: Suspected Sneaky Kidney Involvement

    yes, isn’t it strange and wonderful how this disease can appear in soooooo many different ways? Just makes me weep with joy at the variety of life.

    Generally, I wouldn’t trust anything I read on...

    Re: Suspected Sneaky Kidney Involvement

    Skin irritation (along with joint pain) was one of my first symptoms. I had angry red rashes come up over my torso and upper arms, itchy as hell and no indication of their cause. A dermatologist did...

    Re: Suspected Sneaky Kidney Involvement

    Dude, sorry to hear about the flare, itís something we all have to monitor for. Taking notes was a good idea as soon as you felt strange. In answer to your query; Wegs loves kidneys so much because...

    Re: Coronavirus and GPA

    Just be aware the second dose can induce a stronger reaction, very flu like for a day or two. If so, that’s a good sign, means your immune system is working against the vaccine as it should. Just...

    Re: Possible GPA flareup in the ear

    It sounds like it might be a syndrome called Long COVID, some recovered patients are reporting odd symptoms for months after the infection. Best thing to do is rule out Wegs first if thatís your main...

    Re: Flare up and Rituximab route questions

    The worst part of Rituximab for me was manhandling the bag hanger into the toilet. Apart from that, it’s just a log boring day. I’ve never heard of anyone having any adverse reaction, though it’s...

    Re: research so far indicates vaccine is safe

    Thanks for the info and link, makes good bedtime reading. Am I being presumptuous in thinking 2021 may just be a tad better than that other year?

  13. Re: UTI and antibiotics after RTX infusion

    I’m on prophylactic Bactrim twice a week for over a year now, with mycophenolate and bi-annual Ritux infusions. My rheumatologist insists on it. I don’t think off-the-shelf antibiotics will hurt you,...

    Re: Question via email: Falls and tremors

    Good point, sinus issues can cause inner ear disruption, like when you get dizzy with a head cold. We all know Wegs likes the respiratory tract, so maybe there's a link that way with balance issues.
  15. Re: New User with no diagnosis. Looking for advice.

    Sorry to hear youíre being put through the wringer, mate. I have to agree with gilders, nasal biopsy is a good indicator but certainly not definitive. I had very little upper respiratory involvement,...
