  • From this study (1 month ago):

  • Started 8 days ago with only left leg, knee to toes numb, tingly and pins and needles with my knee purple and reddish in color when I got cool. Next day it was the right leg, knee to toes along with the left. That night it was both arms elbow to fingertips along with the legs, knees to toes. Went to doctor and he ran blood work that showed I was low on B12 and Potassium vitamins.He prescribed me steroids and ordered me to take vitamins and if not better in 2-3 days he would run tests for peripheral neuropathy. Made another app. for this coming up Tuesday. Things have only gotten worse sense I saw doctor, no good changes. I hurt all over now in my muscles and it kinda feels as if my vanes are being tied in knots,burns and aches terribly. Are these signs of peripheral neuropathy?

  • From this study (1 year ago):

  • I have been on Prednisone 3-20 mg per day 2 AM 1 with Dinner since 12/26/12 to treat diagnosed polymyositis. Imuran was added for the polymyositis on 1/18/13 starting with 50 mg then 1/26 increasing to 100 mg/day. I think the prednisone or Imuran is facilitating the the choking and coughing up phelm cause I am fine and once I take my Prednisone and Imuran, I get weak and cough for most of the day and night. Is extremely hard to get rest at night as I cough all choke all night long.

    Prednisone used often enough can cause fungus infection. All steroids can do that and anti-biotics, too. Have your self checked for fungus, there are tests, and ask your doctor to put you on anti-fungal therapy. I just found this out after five years of misery and being misdiagnosed with rhinosinutis/asthma. Oh I have that, but the true nature is called Allergic Fungal Sinusitus. My new intelligent doctor started me out on diflucan.
