- Adverse reaction to prednisone
Severe allergic reaction. Given prednisone for angioedema attributed to Lisinopril. Within 24 hours, severe red skin on face, bp +200/+100 spikes, shortness of breath, chest pain snd severe heart palpitations. Went to ER. Given another IV cocktail of sulomedrol, Bdnadryl snd Zantac, told to double my prednisone pills to 20 mg twice a day. On fifth day, znother similar reaction but worse. Went in ambulance to ER. Put on oxygen and atavan. Sent home with six day tapering dose. No appetite. Nausea. After last pill, blood pressure spikes, flushing, chills, fatigue, blood sugar crashes, especially at night. Had to eat every two hours. Severe skin pain and itching, going on still after six weeks of stopping meds. This drug has HORRIBLE side effects. None of the drs czn tell me how long this will last, or evdn if it will go away. Eating organic, taking soothing baths, detoxing, taking adrenal, vitamin and mineral suppldments, drinking water and detoxing teas. Some symptoms are a bit better but skin is driving me crazy. How czn this drug be prescribed when drs really don 't know all it does nor how to counteract the horrible side effects!?!?
- My finger tendons broke on prednisone
Twelve years ago I was put on prednisone for sudden hearing loss. The prednisone helped the hearing loss (for as long as I took the drug; hearing loss returned after I stopped the prednisone.) But I kept getting ruptured tendons in my fingers, which I had to splint to use. I couldn't figure out why in heck this was happening. My doctor(s) didn't have a clue. I suspected the ruptures might have to do with prednisone. Now I know they were caused by it. When I stopped the prednisone, the tendon-ruptures stopped, too. This should be Must Tell information for any doctor who prescribes this dangerous drug.
- Stevia and inflamated lymphnode
I have been taking stevia leaf mostly with the three-four cups of tea, mix of green, red, white, roibos, for a couple of years.
Last year I noticed something bugging me along the "bikini line", so almost precisely where the border of the underwear touches. Thought it was an inflamated hair sack due to pulling out hair to keep bikini line trimmed.
It didnt get better so I thought it maybe could be a pimple.
It kept growing instead of getting better. At a stage it got big and looked almost like a testikel or so I thought..
I took it to the doctor, he said it was the lymphatic system trying to defend me from something but lets make some tests..they stuck a needle in it and took out liquid to check if it was malignant ..came back that it wasnt...phew!
But still there...doctor gave me antiinflamatorys if bother too much.
By chance had no time to drink my usual amount of tea for a week or so and noticed it got better. So I thought to myself"can it be the stevia?" because I alternate the teas I didnt think it was that, but started testing to totally skip the stevia leafs, when brewing the tea, and the inflamation or the "lump" disapeared. I was going to stop taking the tea too to test if it could be that, but thought it wasnt necesary since the lump disapeared.
I dont have a clue why, and I dont have time to research but just wanted to share in case someone has experienced something similar.
