I am resistant to antibiotics had a steroid shot of prednisone in my butt now I cannot sleep I'm an emotional wreck irritable and nauseous for 3 days now I'm sweaty or freezing just NOT comfortable is this normal ??? please help I feel like I'm going crazy this was last option I guess because none of the antibiotics were killing the infection I have been dealing with for over a year... basically am I dying or crazy, or could it be a normal side effect from the steroid and why use a steroid to treat infection I'm just confused and concerned and need to know that I am NOT an alien life form thank you also how long can these effects last omg I feel like a train wreck
Prednisone is a valuable medication for many infections, serious conditions, but it can also cause terrible side effects as well when you need to stop taking it if you're given more injections. Did your Dr mention if he will be giving more injections? If so you may experience withdrawal syndrome if you've been on it for more than two weeks. You should always taper down slowly if need be after two weeks. Also if your doctor puts you on oral tabs be sure to take them in the morning. There is really no way of knowing how long the side effects last as we are all different. If you're still feeling the horrible side effects please contact your doctor right away. Take care
