144586 tn?1284669764 The acid destroys the barrier to bacterial infection, and together with the prednisone the patient becomes prone to a sore throat, and infection which may rapidly progress to the lung. Thus, the drill is, when on high-dose oral predisone, avoid esophageal acid erosion. I don't know why this information is not widely known. This is accomplished by: (a) not eating within two hours of sleeping. (b) avoiding foods that contain methylxanthines (chocolate), which relax the sphincter.
Avatar m tn I do see some new small bumps next to the original mark. My sore throat is still sore but has change. I now have practically lost my voice. I have read so much about the rarity of getting HSV-2 orally and how most people have HSV-1 already and didn't know that I think I am worrying a little too much about it.
Avatar n tn 4cm nodule in my right thyroid. Have felt like total pooh for two months now, no energy, sore throat, neck, headaches....just miserable. Went in for the FNA (biopsy) last Friday, hoping for good news this Friday, really concerned though because of how I feel. I'm miserable. Anyone know anyone that had to have a nodule removed? If it is benign, I can't imagine they'd want me to keep it in there based solely on the way I've felt for two months now. I'm such a mess.
Avatar n tn Your sore throat discrpition is exactly what we have been chasing for nine months.Our 14 year old dughter has the same as you do in the throat/ear pain. Ulcers and whiteish inflamation and she has even developed ulcers in her mouth ,tongue and nose. Using colcinchin and nilstat/nystatin and benadryl ( a compuond made at the pharmacy.
Avatar f tn I didn't mention that I was starting to get another cold on top of the bronchitis, a little bit of a stuffy nose and a sore throat. The nice thing is that the prednisone has helped alleviate those cold symptoms, but I've read that it can weaken your immune system. I'm only supposed to take the prednisone for 5 days total. Is this going to make me sicker/make the cold last longer when I get off the prednisone in a few days?
Avatar f tn Hi, I was just put on prednisone for my extreme mono I have had for 5 months- I''m taking 16mg 3 times per day for 3 days then 2 times per day for 3 days, then I'm taking 10mg two times per day for two days then one time per day for two days. Will I have moon face or other side effects when taking this drug short term? I am nervous, I started tonight. I just want to feel better and like myself again.
1283791 tn?1276821914 You are not experiencing withdrawals, because you only took prednisone for two days. If you had been on it for a month, then that's different. Also, most of your symptoms do not match up with typical prednisone side effects. The rash was an allergic reaction, so that's why they stopped your course of treatment. Prednisone was likely given to you to ease the inflammation from tonsilitis.
Avatar m tn but unfortunately 4 days before 6 months test I had a meth prednisone injection for my dry mouth and white tongue and skin rashes . later found out that this is type of medicine which can suppers the immune system and following that no antibody production .I was in deep anxiety and stress science these 6 months window period (sleep 4 hours per day and very sick) ,again I'm under stress right now MOSTLY BECAUSE OF INJECTION.
Avatar f tn Hi doctor Sorry to come back here but again I am sick for the 4th time in 4 months with sore throat and sinus infection. I went to my doctor today and seems a little concern about me gettin.g sick so much. I ended up telling him my risk and he order an hiv test. This would be 24 weeks from my risk. I am so nervous about it now, doctor I am scared because I had sex with my wife unprotected just the other day and now my doctor thinks something is really wrong with me.
Avatar f tn even though I knew that I was getting enough air, I felt that I could not get a good breath and my throat felt very tight and jaw just clenched open while I was gasping for breath. I also felt very anxious. I never experienced this before. Boy it was scary. The doctor said that sensation that you can't breathe is a side effect from prednisone and triggered an anxiety attack. Have you every seen this side effect? I have taken short burst prednisone in the past with no problems.
Avatar f tn Finally I called again for another appt and they decided to put me on Solu Medrol for 4 days followed by 6 days of prednisone taper. I didn't have ANY improvement until the 6th day of Pred. I woke up and my legs didn't feel like collapsing, I could walk, even backwards, I was so happy I was back to my old self again! Then after only 4 - 5 days I slowly started getting weaker again, had a fever, ached all over, could barely walk again so I went to the Dr.
Avatar f tn As a home-mother I am seeing her since birth and my experience tells me that whenever she has a throat infection the pain comes along for sure. The pain is independent of throat but she gets more prone with throat infection and excessive outdoor play (2-3hrs). I have discussed this with her doctors several times but haven't got any satisfactory reply. What should be my next step in bringing her out of this situation? Hw should I build her strength so she can play outdoor games for longer hrs.

393685 tn?1425816122 You'd think the prenisone would be stopping the pain. What are you on prednisone for again? Sorry, remember brain fog. Any fever?
Avatar n tn Strep throat is confirmed by a test when they swab the back of your throat. I can't comprehend any doctor treating you for strep throat if they have not tested you for it. If the diagnoses has been confirmed and you are not responding to the antibiotics you mights need something stronger. You should call your doctor's office and let them know how you are feeling. They would be able to call something else in for you or might want to do other tests to confirm what may be the problem.
Avatar n tn I was on Prednisone for 9 months, 2 years ago for asthma. I am still not able to get rid of the moon face! I lost about 20 of the 70 lbs I gained right away and the rest is stuck. Since then, I've had pain in my back and feet. I've heard that Prednisone encourages arthritis. Anyone else heard this or have problems? For the past 6 months, I'm in constant pain and am now being told it might be Fibromyalgia. One good way to get rid of the pain . . . Prednisone!
Avatar f tn ok great. my son has it, and she gave him 400 dosage of amox. question for me is WHY does the throat spray numb one side of my throat almost completely yet, cause me excrutiating pain on the other? worse yet is i have this ugly red rash on my chest and under one armpit (same side of body) and these boils or large pussfilled sacs forming on my chest as well.
362971 tn?1201990634 I have periodic sore throat and really painful mouth sores. I used CLOTRIMAZOLE for the mouth sores and it worked. Sore throat I gargle 5x per day with a salt (2 tsp) and baking soda (2tsp) mix in 1 qt water. I am 56, 1a and in wk 40 of 48. Seems to keep it under control. Haven't needed antibiotics although this tx wears down your autoimmune system.

Avatar m tn Tuesday - Had a fever and started to feel ill with a sore throat and just generally tired with achey knees. No congestion, runny nose, or coughing.Wednesday - Felt pretty terrible, achey all over, tired, fever, sore throat, swollen tonsils, etc. Went to doctor and rapid strep test came back negative. The doctor believed it to be viral but still prescribed Zythromax, which I began taking daily.Thursday - Felt tremendously better, but stayed home and rested.
Avatar n tn Hi I often take prednisone in small doses (5-20mg short spurts) for allergic reactions of a systemic nature and lately Ive had to get cortisone shots for either allergy or tendon shoulder issues. My thyroid tested between 1-2 right where doc wants it but my hair is still slightly coming out down drain (more then normal) and I wonder what the cortisone shots and prednisone will do to my thyroid ? I mean will it tend to make me more hypo needing more synthroid or needing less?
Avatar m tn I've been having a sore throat and pain under my chin right in the center by where my tongue would be it's on the outside the doctors just say it's my tonsils I've been through prednisone and 2 antibiotics and no relieve when it get's real bad it feels like something stabbing the outside of my throat area so far no lumps have been felt except my lymph nodes which doctor says is normal with throat problems and there small. does any body have any ideas what this might be?
Avatar n tn The only two people I have had intercourse with in the past year are currently HIV negative, and they both vehemently report no other possible exposures for well over 6 months.
Avatar m tn Last weekend after having yet another episode of my throat feeling like something is coming out or growing inside of it and my lypmh nodes swelling up the doctor diagnosed me with having epligotitus. They treated me with a barrage a antibiotics, steroids, and prednisone for a whole week!! This is after i had been to the emergency room three previous times for this condition. I've been out the hospital for more than a week now and still taking the meds but it hasn't seemed to get any better.
1207048 tn?1282177904 ) But when I had a two-week course of prednisone for sudden hearing loss, the achiness improved greatly or even went away for a long time--weeks or months, if I remember correctly. It might be a virus, but since it's happened twice after prednisone, who knows. You should let your doctor know about it. Hope you get some good rest. Rest REALLY helps achiness.
1094370 tn?1317138425 It is the only thing that works for inflammation for me so I have to take it for short times for dental and back problems. No my throat isn't sore. So most of the time it doesn't bother me too much.
895798 tn?1241586100 Hello, The symptoms that you are having can be due to viral throat infection causing sore throat,allergies esp air borne allergies and also panic disorder can be related to these symptoms. I sincerely suggest you to get an examination done by an allergist /chest physician to confirm the diagnosis.You may need a throat swab examination and allergy tests to confirm the diagnosis.Treatment will depend on the same. The tests for allergies include skin tests and blood tests like RAST.
Avatar n tn Lymph nodes are swollen and painful, pain radiating into ears and feelings of sore throat exist. I am on Prednisone and Singulair. Singulair makes me feel worse. I can't help but wonder if they are overlooking something. My blood pressure has been higher in the past few months and I am slightly anemic. Has anyone found relief from the constant sensation of a swelling throat. Right now, I feel totally helpless.
Avatar n tn I am taking the prednisone for the last one week, now; the thing is, that I am feeling the sore-throat feeling, and dryness in my throat all the time. Can you please advise what’s going wrong with my throat? Is it the side effect of the Prednisone or I am having some other serious problem. An early response is appreciated. Thanks Kiran.
