Avatar n tn I was only supposed to be taking 60mg. I have sharp pain in chest, neck, and jaw when trying to move around. I get extremely short of breath and it hurts to breath. I have developed some sores in my mouth and on my genitalia. I am extremely tired and weak. What could this be?
Avatar f tn I had severe pain in my tongue, chin and jaw. It was difficult for me to open my mouth, much like when I had my wisdom teeth removed. When the swelling feeling is not there, I can open my mouth fine with no pain. Some times it is swelling with extreme pain, some times it is just swelling and sometimes it is just pain.

Avatar n tn I have been dealing with the intense neuralgia type pain, with pain killers and NSAIDs. The very intense pain is now reduced to pain mainly around the ear, throat and jaw. The facial palsy however has not improved.

Avatar f tn She no longer has headaches but still has slight jaw pain and double vision. How long does it take for the prednisone to work and will her vision return back to normal? Has anyone else had their vision return back to normal after suffering from giant cell arteritis/vasculitis and how long did it take?
Avatar f tn I will go see a cardiologist next week. She did do an EKG and my HR was normal. I have burning stabbing pain under my jaw line, entire neck sides, throat sides and behind my ears, the pain runs all the way to the back of the head. They did an MRI of the neck and everything was okay. But when she felt my neck under my jaw line, it hurts when she just touches the area. She says she is pretty sure it is inflamed arteries. What can you tell me about this issue?
Avatar f tn Thank you so much, those who've given me support. I really need it. Saw the ENT today. There is no mass in my face, though I didn't think there was, as a mass doesn't form in less than a week. Neither he nor the radiologist know what's causing the swelling. Could be an infection, but if it is I'm already on an antiobiotic, and the right one, apparently. If it's a virus, just have to wait it out. I'm already on Prednisone and pain killers, the right choices too.

By Thursday, my jaw was killing me and my teeth on the top and bottom were hurting. I figured my TMJ was flaring up. Well, by Friday, it felt like there was pressure with the pain, so I thought maybe I was getting an abscess. I went to the dentist.

I have been to see my Dr. and he has put me on Methylprednisolone tablets. A six day dose. When I first started them the dizziness seem to go away.

Avatar f tn Sunday March 20 at approx 2am I woke up with pain in my mouth left side. It felt like it was coming from two teeth. One upper and one lower and radiated around. Pain was strong for about three hours. After taking Motrin and alleve the pain dulled and I went back to sleep. When I awoke the pain was still there so I called the dentist. I saw the dentist on Monday and she sent me directly to endontist assuming I needed a root canal.
Avatar n tn I've noticed that after 3 months of daily prednisone that I have developed hair on my upper lip and jaw line. Has anyone else experienced side effects like this? I don't see how it will go away on it's own. How do you treat unwanted facial hair? This is quite upsetting to me. Thanks!
Avatar m tn Sinus allergies also cause neck muscle tension and pain that spreads to the scalp, causes lymph nodes to swell and put pressure on nerves that cause ear and jaw pain. Allergies can trigger pain in the face, ear, neck, head/scalp and jaw/tmjd, as well as put pressure on the perotid glands and salivary glands. I've had some triggered by using prednisone to help treat sinus and lung infections.

Avatar f tn Since last Sunday (6 days now), I have had a strong headache on the left side of my head, just above my left ear. It is like an intermittent jab that make me stop for a moment what I am doing. There are no other apparent symptoms. Usually, I don't take any pain medications. However, I have been taking Advil since then, even though the pain is not gone. Could you tell me the symptoms of a blood clot, stroke or any idea what this pain may be related with?

388376 tn?1302011418 I went to a specialist that thought it was tmj, then a different jaw specialist that said nothing to do with my jaw . A neurolagist couldn't figure it out and told my just to think of my cup as half full!!! I have seen a few specialist that more or less threw their hands up. The only dr that has given me a somewhat resonable answer was an oral pathologist. She said i have Atypical trigeminal neuralga and put me on these drugs that quite frankly make me high.
505094 tn?1240317431 s worse), and the symptoms of Giant Cell Arteritis have gotten worse since I started on Prednisone. (sharp eye pain in both eyes now-pressure in temples, pain in temples going into the jaw). I don't know what is causing what any more. Has anyone had this cluster of diseases and had similar reactions. I do know that Prednisone can cause some of these symptoms.
Avatar n tn Shortly after she began feeling better, she woke up one morning with a severe headache in her right temple and it hurt to open her jaw. We went to the emergency room, they tested her vision, eye pressure, and had a CT scan. All the tests were fine. The ER doctor said all her symptons pointed towards temporal arteritis, but said it was unlikely, because of her age. He put her on 60 mg of prednisone, and arranged to have her see her regular Dr. We went to see her regular Dr.
