In brief: Many
Most people get better very quickly within a few days after starting appropriate treatment.
Your doctor will likely prescribe corticosteroids. Corticosteroids are often started even before a biopsy confirms the diagnosis. Aspirin may also be recommended. Most people begin to feel better treatment. However, you typically need to take medications for 1 - 2 years. They will be slowly reduced.
