Prednisone and nose bleeds

Common Questions and Answers about Prednisone and nose bleeds

Did you experience any recurrence of the bloody nasal discharge and presence of other symptoms? The nasal mucosa is very vascular and minor or infrequent nose bleeds may not be worrisome. Prednisone side effect usually include acne, dry skin, thinning skin, bruising or discoloration and slow wound healing. The bleeding may be an indirect cause but to make sure that there is nothing serious, especially if it recurs, have this checked by your doctor for direct clinical examination.
She is now experiencing nose bleeds on the same side as the surgery. Can this be related? She feel tender in that nostril and there is a small bump inside. She hasn't had a nose bleed ever in her life. Could this be a side effect of the prednisone eye drops? She was one them for ~ 2 months. Longer that normal. Any clues?
I find this one helps with sleep and keeps me dry. Good luck and just be patient with the prednisone...it does work.
When hay fever was bad I would use a saline rinse in my eyes and in my nose and in my throat every hour to wash out pollens. My dust allergy got so much better once we got rid of all the carpeting. I now use indoor/outdoor rugs only as they don't absorb dust. I still have dust and tree allergies as well as cat and am sensitive to smokes, perfumes, fragrances. When I buy a new product I try to get hypoallergenic ones without fragrance.
Worsened communication skills (I'm already autistic), lack of short term memory, suicidal thoughts, anxiety, nasal swelling (by the end of two months my nose was visibly twice the size it had been), constant sinus pain, frequent nose bleeds, stabbing eye pains, and more. By the time I had stopped taking it, I was so deathly afraid of anti-epileptic drugs that I went a couple of weeks without any preventatives. The seizures rebounded in clusters, and I did my best to ignore them.
Needless to say, I had nose bleeds for two weeks after it and it was very painful. My advice, discuss what the doctor will give you for pain meds BEFORE the surgery. If they act like, "oh that will be plenty for you." Tell them you'll look elsewhere for a doctor who will be more interested in how you will feel, not everyone else.
I have seen a cardiologist and do have a PFO, but he felt the cause for all my symptoms was autoimmune (probably vasculitis as a result) and I have been waiting for four months for an appointment with a rheumatologist with a reputation for solving rare cases and am on 20mg prednisone in the meantime, which helps the headaches and some of the symptoms. They started the vascular work up...ANA, SED, C-Reactin...the only thing out of wack was anticardiolipin Igm antibodies.
type pain in my right temple and my left eye was drooping and the left side of my face was numb. I was treated with solumedrol and prednisone and was fine until Feb. 2007. In Feb. the pain started again in my right temple and my left eye started to droop and the left side of my face became numb. I was diagnosed with Paratrigeminal Neuralgia (Raeder's Syndrome). It is a rather rare condition that is related to the cluster headaches.
Went to the doctor and was given Diflucan and prednisone 20mg taper for 3 days. Finished on a Thursday and the following Monday broke out in a hideous raised rash to my face,ears and eyes. Hard to tell if same "rash" was to my groin area as to that area always being swollen and reddened. Again went to doctor and now am on antiviral (temiflu), antibiotic (spectracef) and medrol.
Remember dear heart, people on the forum only speak about what they experience and each ones experiences with drugs is different. Your nose bleeds MAY be from the testing you had by your doctor. This is also something you should bring up with your doctor. It's also the time of year where the air is very dry and we are exposed to dry heat, when we heat our homes, so nose bleeds in the absence of any "tubes going up your nose." is a real possibility. Again check with your doctor.
For the last 6 months I have been getting tearing (look like paper cuts) in my vaginal area (1/4 to 1/2 inch long). I get the tears at least once or twice a week and they last from 2-4 days, go away for a few days and then come back. They continue to occur in the same locations; 1. Inside the vaginal lips on the sides almost always in the crease (between the labia minora and majora?) 2. Between the anus and vaginal opening (perineum) 3. Above the clitoris in the "hood" area.
If symptoms persist, a sinus CT, and a course of prednisone may be a good idea. If the antibiotics give you the runs, eat a cup of yogurt every day. This will replace the "good" bacteria (which help your bowel function) that the antibiotics destroy.
Jan 9th, 2008 still have a sore nose and have nose bleeds, i have a check up in a week.
When they put me on the prednisone I would have nose bleeds at night and in the day. So the doctor tapered me down from 100mg. Down when I reached 20mg the pain would start again I was on 20mg for at least 2months before I went to 10mg for 1month then 5mg for 1 month then he gave me methotrexate I forgot how many mgs I took I know I took it for about 6 months then the doctor said if everything was ok take half then I was off of it I was happy, I thought I was cured but...
constant nasal drip, cough and hoarse throat. Some have nose bleeds, fatigue as well as many other of the same symptoms as GCA and polymyalgia. A positive ANCA blood test and a biopsy of the nose, kidney or lung confirms the diagnosis of this disease. It is treated with a high dose of prednisone and a low dose of cyclophosphamide and in some cases plasmapherisis is used to clean the antibodies out of the blood.

Lots of blood and it bleeds very easily. The scabs became very hard and dark after using the mupriocin and were not able to be dissolved/removed by warm compressing. Over a week's time, the mupriocin became so irritating that I stopped using it yesterday. It was making the lesions drain more and more, and my face hurt and swelled more and more. I could not sleep. Initially like most things, I had high hopes for this ointment working, but this is typical that things got worse.
i also get slight nose bleeds some mornings and a feeling my 2 front teeth are being pushed out and go extremely sensitive. (although this has stopped now). and after reading this website, i also have a aching pain in my shoulder blade that could be related. i fact i feel even worse now! i was given steroids to take for 6 weeks, and now on nose drops for 6 weeks and then nasal spray/puffs for another 6 weeks.
If it came time for my next period, and it didn't show, and I was still getting negative hpt's then come in to the doc. The part that surprised me was that she said "even though those tests say they're accurate, sometimes you just don't have enough hormone in your system to show up". I said "yeah, but really, how often do you see that happen?" She said "Actually, I've seen it quite a bit".
Close little flap of ears with thumb,place index finger on forehead, and rest three fingers on base of nose touching eyes. Breathe in through nose. And now breathe out through nose while humming like a bee. Repeat this 5 to 21 times.
I have lived with this for many years and havent had too many problems, other than nose bleeds and low energy at times. So to answer your questions.......I guess you have to first find out WHY you have low platelets and go from there. If your doctors suggest prednisone, really check out the side effects, they can be bad, Good Luck ......
I still have this cold and I really hope it goes away today my nose is raw and I have enough on my plate with work and ivf. I havent seen my best gf in a while so I arranged a spa day date with her tomorrow no massage just hair nails and makeup then dinner it will be so nice to see her and catch up we havent had a gf date in months and it will be nice to have a mental break. I try not to talk to her about all this since she has opted to never have children.
initially conceding my staggering, numbness, abrupt, unprovoked and unstoppable falls, and loss of consciousness to bleeds in brain, he changed hus mind and again implicated the medicines and also alcohol (he knows I do not drink). But above all he and my mother believe I have been putting on a medical charade for years in order "to feel special." He only admits to my having multiple transfusions and death-defying pneunonia b/c he talked to the doctors treating me.

When you see him, tell him you have been passed around and do not want to leave his care until he resolves this problem to your satisfaction. Tell him about that cyst, your nose bleeds, vomiting during the ENG, and now your nearly total loss of balance. And of course bring or forward all your records over the last five years, to include any pictures and reports from the scans. IN THE MEANTIME, go to the drugstore and get some Meclazine, which is for people who suffer from motion sickness.
