From this study (3 weeks ago):
Chronic headaches and blurred vision have increased since starting steriods. Also cloudy head with a feeling of brain and body not connecting.

Hot hads have only started in past week.
Diagnised with sarcoidosis in January.
From this study (5 months ago):
For 6 years I have been taking predisone to treat my Myasthenia Gravis, which is primarily ocular. I've always had moderate situational anxiety but as soon as I began taking prednison my axiety sky rocketed. My predinsone doses have ranged from 5-30mg per day, depending on weather or not I am in remission, but every time I have tried to get off prednisone I have a bad flare up. My neurologist began treating my anxiety 6 years ago with clonazepam and it worked for me for about 4 years. The entire 5th year of being on clonazepam it had little to no effect on controlling my anxiety any longer. I have also taken mestinon along side of prednisone to treat my myasthenia gravis but it had little effect on my condition. This past year my family practioner tapered me off the clonazepam using alprazolam and it has been working very well. Recently, due to an overload of general life responsibilities, I have began to have another flare up. This is the first time while on alprazolam that this has occured. I have been on 5mg of prednisone and 2mg of alprazolam daily for the past year or so and have been problem free. Today I have had to bump back up to 20mg of prednisone to control my Myasthenia Gravis, but I am having extremly peaked anxiety levels. Hopefully I will be seeing one of my doctors this week.
From this study (1 year ago):
I have occasional skipped heart beats, but since taking prenisone they have become extremely noticeable and bothersome. Also feel weak and shaky when they start. Can't exert myself.
