    Joe, I have seen you mention the temporary blindness before. Has anyone ever considered amaurosis fugax? Blindness is not only the rarest side-effect from Plaqeunil, but it also doesn't happen in an acute way immediately after just a few return. In a study of 363 patients, the most significant symptoms associated with GCA included jaw claudication, neck pain, and anorexia 2. Additional symptoms include headache, scalp tenderness, postural amaurosis fugax, weight loss, myalgia of proximal girdle muscles, malaise, and diplopia, if the extraocular muscles become ischemic. In a subject or older with known vascular field is the amaurosis fugax or transient monocular blindness CMT. The patient describes well the total loss of vision in that eye or the feeling of being “as in cotton.” Occlusion of the other eye would make him unable to move.

    Other symptoms of GCA include headache, scalp tenderness, myalgia (polymyalgia rheumatica), and constitutional symptoms such as fever, malaise, weight loss, or anorexia. When present, jaw claudication and neck pain are strongly suggestive of GCA.
