Common Questions and Answers about Prednisone and rapid heart beat


Avatar n tn I too have a rapid heart beat in the morning. I have become alergice to Beta blockers and break out in a terrible rash. Have been switched to several other drugs but so far none have worked. Do you know about drugs other than Beta blockers that are effective for a rapid heart beat.

Avatar n tn The steroids can cause this mouth problem and you are supposed to rinse your mouth out after using steroid inhalers. Steroids can definitly cause rapid heart beat. Still, I would call doc. about sores. The sores sound like they could be shingles.
Avatar n tn I too have bouts of anxiety attacks. First one was when I was 17 and that's when I was told I had an irregular heart beat and a murmur (trip to the ER). Like you, just telling me that made my anxiety even worse! I was prescribed either Xanax or the equivalent then -- don't know if Xanax was around in 1977. Every step I took, I was afraid of increasing my heart rate.

591470 tn?1218978786 What is the success rate of DHE-45 with Depakote 1000 mg a day with adivan in treating intractable migraines in a hospital for four days to be infused 4 times day, also aside from peripheral ischemia, irregular heart beat from miss placementof a PICC Line, infection, and stroke what other risks are involved?
Avatar n tn Metformin short circuits to some degree insulin's negative role. Metformin also reduces lipids (cholesterol) and so has very positive effects to preventing heart disease and reducing blood pressure. Google any of these terms in relation to Metformin and you will see. If you are a person who has tried to lose weight though calorie control and exercise, but have failed, you should try Metformin.
Avatar f tn other times, she has what seems like hyperthyroidism w/ weight loss, rapid heart beat, etc. No one seems to be able to figure it out. We finally got on the Mayo Clinic waiting list; now upgraded to the scheduling list; say we should be going late this month or early next month. I pray someone can figure this all out for her. She's a jr in high school w/ plans on going onto college, but the high school doesn't want her there when she's swelled....liability issues.
Avatar n tn I am not stressed nor do I feel its anxiety. But I have been placed on a betta blocker for rapid heart beat I can't help but wonder if that has anything to do with my condition. I get so scared at night sometimes I wonder if I'm going to wake up. Somebody any body HELP!!
488823 tn?1218374167 Oh boy, my heart goes out to you! I'm on week 42 of 48 now, and I feel pretty crummy most of the time, but I still remember weeks 2-3 of Incivek as being the absolute worst. The side effects hit during week 2, and hit like a ton of bricks. Be ready to respond quickly to the sx, as they really do tend to snowball quickly if you watch and wait too long. If you get the nausea enough to feel like vomiting call your doctor ASAP and ask for Zofran. You donor want to throw up your medication!
Avatar n tn I mean it's like I'm listening to my heart beat through a stethoscope when I lay on my leftside at night. On my right side, I don't hear it so much and during the day, I don't notice it either. But, at night I do and it sets me into a tail spin of anxiety. I feel like the Drs are all going to tell me "well, you had all the tests last year and there was nothing you're fine, take a xanax, it's all stress." Geeze, you think I'm stressed?
1556337 tn?1341712211 i did go see my doctor, she suggested it was because i havn't been on citalopram that long and if the shortness of breath and rapid heart beat continued to go up to A n E (hospital/ER) though i'd rather not have too because the waiting times can be hours before you get seen!, and i was also appointed a blood test to investigate further, so, its just all down to soldiering on and hoping these symptoms dont cause any more freakout attacks, fingers crossed!
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn If you are sweating, rapid heart beat etc.... you need to be more aware of adding salt. AI is basically when the body cannot hold sodium and the loss of sodium is when the body has a crisis. Usually, when sodium goes down, sodium drops and potassium rises. There are a few of us where both sodium and potassium drop.
Avatar n tn The doctor said the carotid artery was inflamed and prescribed a nine day course of prednisone. I started the prednisone tonight along with 3 advil and the pain is already much, much better. My doctor told me that there is an 80% chance this treatment will resolve the problem, but there was a 20% chance that it might return and I might need another course of prednisone. The little bit of reading I have done so far seem to point to a viral cause.
394687 tn?1290924440 (I switched to suppliments etc - that seemed to work great till now) I just stayed on Enbrel and prednisone (only 5 mgs) I have tried darvacette a few times the last few days with no relief - just makes me even tiereder then I already am. Tylenol does nothing but upset my tummy. I'm alergic to most the RA drugs. Not sure what to ask for. I'm pretty darn determined to get through this so don't want to get them so concerned that they pull me off if you know what I mean.

Avatar n tn Rarely is it related to your heart at such a young age and the fact that your a woman and those symptoms are not usually like that for a woman. Also do you work alot with computers and typing cause you could have carpal tunnel syndrome too? Anyway, wish you luck.
Avatar f tn I fear dying horribly bad and I am afraid this pain might have to do with my heart. Although, I have been to the doctors and the said my heart and lungs sound good. but no test were done. Do you think this could be my anxiety affecting me? Have you had these symptoms? I have a presciption for zoloft but am afraid to take it because of my unborn baby.
1512478 tn?1290256406 i just started the treatment for the poor circulation and reynauds and am still waiting to hear about the rapid heart rate. Has anyone out there experienced such problems with reynauds and lupus and tachycardia with lupus and or poor circulation?
4622451 tn?1360598855 Anytime we mentally focus on a bodily function - we can become neurotic about it. Many people become overly focused on their heart beat etc. You might try having something you think about or do everytime you notice yourself having anxious thoughts about your breathing. I wish you the best as you taper off your meds. I'm so glad you have a job you enjoy and grandkids you love - those are great things to think about.
Avatar n tn Hi all. New to this. I am a 44 year old woman who is physically fit (gym 5 days a week) and eats pretty well. Approx 5 weeks ago I developed veins showing on both hands. They have not gone away and infact they are bulging most times, and I can "feel them". They have increased and I can see some starting to climb up my forearm now. Before this, my veins barely ever showed.
Avatar n tn A disorder of heart rate and rhythm in which the upper heart chambers (atria) are stimulated to contract in a very rapid and/or disorganized manner; this usually also affects contraction of the ventricles. Causes, incidence, and risk factors: Arrhythmias are caused by a disruption of the normal functioning of the electrical conduction system of the heart. Normally, the atria and ventricles contract in a coordinated manner.
Avatar f tn Then, about 5 or 6 years ago, I started having heart palps and, after doing a couple of EKG's, an ultrasound of my heart and my carotid arteries, etc., my doctor at the time put me on Lopressor to hopefully stop the palps. I have taken 1/2 pill twice a day (50 mg) since then, but have always continued to have palps.....sometimes really bad episodes of them and sometimes I'd go for periods of time and not have any.
Avatar f tn All of which came back normal. They said that they did notice that I had a rapid heart beat 140 bpm and that it worried them. I figured that was b/c I was nervous because of being at the doctors office. They said even for a nervous person it was still high. The respiratory specialist said that since my lungs aren't the problem that I could have a form of heart disease so he recommended that I go to a cardiologist and have an echo done.
Avatar n tn long story short..this episode had possibly damaged my heart and the heart attack enzyme was elevated. i had a murmur surgically repaired 27 years ago and now doctors are saying that there could be electrical problems to the heart,etc.......wanted to keep me in hospital to do a catherization that would check heart electrical impulses but i convinced my primary doc to let me do it on a outpatient basis...
Avatar f tn I started to have a very tight feeling on the sternum area combined with rapid heart beating and coughing up phlegm.I went to the hospital where they told me i was just having Asthma and a cold and sent me home with a perscerpiton of the 2 meds i listed above.Unfortunately i could only afford the prednasone.The next day my heart began to beat so fast it was shaking my whole body and i couldn't breath.
785188 tn?1279932005 Yes, when I had the thyroid problems I had a lot of symptoms. Sweats, rapid heart beat, weight loss (despite eating a lot), very hyper, insomnia. I had both hyper/graves, ended up hitting two thyroid storms before surgery having the surgery. My eyes bulged, developed a huge goiter (football lineman's neck) before finally being diagnosed after 6 months, but by then I was already in a thyroid storm.
