Common Questions and Answers about Prednisone and dizziness

orapred

I am wondering what kind of results has anyone had from the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span> and how soon you may have noticed a difference. My biggest problems have been the shocking pains, tickling skin, and numbness in my hands. The numbness in my hands doesn't feel so bad as it did earlier today, usually it feels as if the circulation is being cut off or tightness. Thank you in advance!
we went to see the doctor who did his surgery and his ears are fine no infection or anything. The doctor put him on a pill for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dizziness</span> and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span>. The pill for dizziness has not helped at all. I dont know how long it takes for prednisone to work maybe it will help... His blood pressure and everything is normal..The doctor said if this prednisone does not work we need to call him..I wish I could find some kind of answers..
My wife is 46 y/o and has had a bout with feeling off balance and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dizziness</span> for the past 10 days. She first had symptoms of a fullness and loud sounds in her left ear and decreased hearing. She visited our PCM and was place on Z-Pac and Sudafed, but no infection was noted. After 3 days of the medications, no relief, so my wife scheduled an ENT appointment. She was then placed on prednisone.
I was in bed and sleeping for next 4 days taking meclizine 3x per day. The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dizziness</span> continued and I was unable to function without <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dizziness</span> and great effort. I returned to primary care doctor and was prescribed prednisone and referred to ENT. When I saw ENT series of tests were given and I was diagnosed with BPPV and told to perform Epsley exercises for 2 weeks.
I have WG and recently developed some neck pain and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dizziness</span>. I had a brain MRI which showed a timy amount of mucosal thickening in the left maxillary sinus. The Cervical spine MRI showed: Small disc protrusion, c5-6, with mild spurring and mild left formanial narrowing. Could this be related to my WG or caused by prednisone? I took 40 mg for about 7 mos and have been above 10 mg for approx. for the other 16 mos. I just started fosamax 9/01.
Felt exhausted after serious bout of bronchitis and long term use of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span>. Tested positive for hypothyroid and put on Synthroid 50 mcg daily. OK for two days. A little sick on the third day. Thought I would die on the fourth day. My stomach was so upset with a burning sensation. I was nauseous and I developed a bad headache with horrible dizziness. Do you think that I have been mis-diagnosed?
It is best to see your physician and discuss your concerns. Hope it helped. Keep me posted. Take care and regards!
I was haveing bouts with severe nausea and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dizziness</span>, fatigue, when I was tested and TSH was 6.7- the highest I have tested at. I am on med. now and it has been fairly normal. I was diagnosed with bursitis, tendonitis, in my hips and recieved a steroid(prednisolone?) and pain shot last Thurs. (actually it was 3 shots) OCH!! Sat. I felt foggy and fatigued and when I went I tried to go to my son's football game (he played great by the way) I became car sick.
Remember doctors will brush off and deny, but if you keep finding people like me and others who took <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span> and having the same exact symptoms, then it proves they are lying and somethings is very wrong with that drug. All of us are NOT crazy, we dont even have a reason to make it up, go figure!
He still cannot not hear anything and went back the the ENT and audiologist today. He has no hearing in his ear and his balance is somewhat off. The ENT prescribed prednisone for 15 days starting with a higher dose working towards a lesser dose. Will this treatment regain a portion of his hearing back? Is there anything else we can be doing to help regain his hearing??
my docs DID not think it was my medication, however, and I have continued taking it since the allergy. Anyway, today, I am stepping down the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span>, and my anxiety is OUT THE ROOF! It is worse than it has been in a long time. I am shaky, my heart feels racy, I feel just tense and tight all over, and I absolutely cannot relax! I'm also having some muscle stiffness, but nothing severe. So..
I have the same symtoms, they have been off and on for the last 18 months. And i also had Ct Scan and Mri which came back normal. It's sometimes accompanied with headaches and nausea. I use to think it was a sleep problem but i started taking sleeping pills and get good sleep but the problem persists. I see a neurologist again next week.
If the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span> makes my symptoms improve and almost disappear and I can function daily, and I am willing to take the health risks, why can't my doctor prescribe it for me when I need it or is there another medicine or treatment I can try. I have drug allergies to: sulfa, penicillin, cipro, cephalosporin, aspirin, nsaid's PLEASE HELP!!
within 1 hour I was experiencing severe abdominal cramps, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dizziness</span> and have been constipated ever since. Has anyone else reacted to prednisone in this way? Is Hydrocortisone the same as prednisone? I'm terrified they are similar and I wont be able to take either.
This is my first time taking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span> and I have had a TERRIBLE experience on this drug! I usually have anxiety, but the last 14 days I have had unbelievable restlessness, panic, insomnia, severe heart palpitations/tachycardia, face swelling, etc. I have spoken to my nurse and two pharmacists who say that these are indeed side effects of prednisone, and that they should get better once I stop the medication.
All benign causes are ruled out so now we're looking at some form of leukemia. And the dominoes keep tumbling down... Mom is also a natural redhead, and I understand that the gene causing red hair, particularly in women can cause some odd reactions to narcotics and anesthesia. They tend to have a huge tolerance to pain, but not to pain medications. This describes my Mom to a T. She can't take even a crumb of a narcotic without vomiting.
My primary gave me mecclizine and xanax and neither are working. The allergist gave me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span> and I had an allergic reaction to it. I had a eeg test done and are waiting for results from that and a endocrinologist. I am so at my wits end. In 3 years I have had to go on disability from this untreatable condition. How do you work with this condition. Has anyone had to take off from work because of this conditon. Its nice to see that its not just me or all in my head.
Felt exhausted after serious bout of bronchitis and long term use of prednisone with Advair (another steroid). Tested positive for hypothyroid condition and put on Synthroid 50 mcg daily. OK for two days. A little sick on the third day. Thought I would die on the fourth day. My stomach was so upset with a burning sensation. I was nauseous, bloated and I developed a bad headache with horrible dizziness. Do you think that "hypothyroidism" is a mis-diagnosis?

Had never had a problem with them at that point, but now having pretty severe problems with shortness of breath after mild exertion, chronic dry cough, tightness in chest, trouble breathing while lying down, and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dizziness</span> and occasional brief headache when I stand up. Also have volitional tremors, but they may be a holdover from cancer treatment.
So when I read your post, I knew I had heard this before and sure enough, I had. I think the PVCs and anxiety should resolve as the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span> works its way out of your system.
I tried to find info on it but didn't understand a lot - other than it can be fatal if it's too high, so I guess that's why he wants me to retest so soon. Other than that, since I've taken the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span> I'm feeling better with sinus and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dizziness</span>. If anyone knows about thyroid levels please post.
I suppose I should call this "Child Neurology" since i am still a teenager (15). Okay, about a month ago, I had a common cold, with a runny nose, some sinus pressure, coughing, sneezing, just a cold. After about 2 weeks the cold didn't go away, so I went to the doctors and she gave me prednisone and said I have "Croop" I took the prednisone for the amount of time she wanted me to, and I got worse.
I have had swollen glands in neck for about 3 months now along with light-headedness and achiness sometimes. Been to ENT, treated w/<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span> and anti-viral... said I have inner ear virus. Days go by and some days symptoms better but most days stay the same. Gland swelling never goes down. What the heck is wrong with me? Had blood tests, head MRI, check ups, etc and nobody can find anything. I feel crappy every day. I am also fatigued every day even though I seem to sleep all night.
He put me on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span> and also did a hearing test, ct scan, and mri. Everything came back normal. He told me that I must have allergies that are keeping me inflammed and gave me a nasal spray. I am still having pressure behing my left eye and dizziness (esp. when I am driving). I am going in about a week to have a VNG test. Will this tell what is going on with me? Could this be my sinuses or something else? Could it be an early start of MS and would the MRI have showed this?

I am a diabetic and have been running very high blood sugars when I have been on the many antibiotics and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span>. I am now experiencing some neuropathy in my hands and feet - do not know if it is related to my mysterious condition or a result of the long periods of high blood sugar. Would appreciate any input. Thanks !!!!
Since you've had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dizziness</span> and balancing problem for just three months, it is needs checking out and in most of the people it may slowly improve. It sounds like that you have benign positional vertigo but if you are significantly affected then I would suggest approaching an ENT specialist and a physiotherapist for treatment, He/She would like to suggest few exercises that may be of help in your condition.
Over the past few months I've had off and on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dizziness</span>. It's not like the room is spinning but more of a swimming or falling feeling. I had the same thing about a year ago which lasted about 3 months and then subsided. It feels more like a very bad brain fog (bad hangover). In addition to this, I've had a crawling like feeling on my left leg and sometimes the right, along with some tightness in my left are (feels like I just got done lifting weights and the muscle is tense).
Went to the DR and they gave me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span> and it didn't seem to help. I am terribly worried that I will have to go another 4 months with this awful condition. I am traveling up to MAYO clinic in Minnesota next week for testing, but if anyone on here has any idea of what is going on it would be great! thank you. could the alcohol (last year) and marijuana (this year) have caused some flare up?..i really have no idea. any help would be great.
