I was an undiagnosed diabetic and put on prednisone for tingling in the lower leg and leg cramps while sleeping. After the second day of prednisone, I became sick to my stomach, vomiting and generally fatigued. I could not contact my doctor as it was Saturday night. I thought I had the flu or food poisoning. I took to my bed to wait until I felt better or Monday to see the doctor. By Monday I was so ill and dehydrated that I couldn't even think to dial 911. My vision was affected while trying to call family. I was transported to the hospital by ambulance and nearly died. Dianosed Type I Diabeties and Ketoacidosis. My question is, did taking Prednisone have any affect on my condition?
