I haven’t found anything on this site about it, so…
Have any of you ever had TIPIC (TransIent Perivascular Inflammation of the Carotid Artery)
I have it on a regular basis, and only recently we found out what it was.
The GP thinks it’s connected to my overall inflammatory reactions.
Have not met rheumy after diagnosis.
It is very painful up to the point that swallowing hurts.
treated with NSAID’s and or steroids it disappears within a few weeks. Left to its own devices it will go as well, but takes a bit longer to do so.
afterwards there are no ill effects whatsoever.
