I was given prednisone by an urgent care Dr. for facial pain after a tooth procedure. I was given a 12 day pack of 10 mg. After about a week I noticed it started making me feel worse and not better. I asked the Dr. if I could stop taking it. I got the ok, but I still feel terrible. My chest feels weird/tight. My spine hurts a little, and of course my original pain is back. I feel like my body has no lubrication in it. Like I can't produce mucus or anything. My muscles are weak and shaky. Not really hungry. At the other end of the spectrum though, I feel full of energy and can't sleep. Is this a permanent affect of this drug? How do i combat this?
