Prednisone side effects nose bleeds

Common Questions and Answers about Prednisone side effects nose bleeds


Avatar f tn In 2012 with our strange S CA weather this winter, I have had constant sinus congestion/swelling, post nasal drip, nose bleeds after trying a different prescription antihistamine spray and it seems saline rinses and daily Claritin offer no relief. I will also add..About 10 months, I got a referral to an ENT who did a very brief exam of my nasal passages and ordered sinus x-rays.They came back normal.
492869 tn?1285022533 I started believing that I was dying. It's no wonder too, with all of the side effects I was having. 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.
Avatar f tn When I talked about steroids causing a rise in blood pressure and blood glucose levels, I was speaking from personal experience with IV Solumedrol and how these affect ME. You may not have the same side effects as I did. But others on the forum report that they have increased energy while on Solumedrol or Prendisone. The questions you ask, are definitely questions that should be asked of your doctor.
Avatar n tn s that I have low blood platelets, anywhere from 22 to 44. I have recently tried prednisone (60mg) which didn't work,, the side effects where bad, so my doctor decided that I should have my spleen removed, I was to have surgery, but decided against it and have found a different doctor. My doctor didnt seem to think that low platelets where connected to Hep C, but my new doctor thinks it probably is.
Avatar n tn I have been on Prednisone, several times, with the short doses (3-4 days) and a long term (over 6 months). The horrible side effects that have left me with little immune system, fat, and still in pain. All of the doctors I saw had no clue of what was wrong and much less of how to treat it. I was given Methotrexate and the first week was great because it helped but then the crossed eyes and double vision started.
Avatar n tn 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.
1316961 tn?1274136871 Sometimes doctors don't have all the answers. This happens with me too. The sinus congested paint effects my ears, head, the whole right side of my face head-jaw, sometimes just a stiff jaw, the tissue right behind my tooth, not the actual tooth or gum. Its very agitating, irritating. The only thing I see relating is right before my cycle, I get creamy dairy and chocolate cravings. So I have a lot of milk, chocolate.
Avatar n tn I went back to the ENT to talk about the deviated septum. He said that my deviation is actually touching the turbinates on the right side of my nose. He then processed to push the blame on my allergist and then prescribed me Singular. I told him that I was not going to drop another $40 on medication that he was guessing that will help me. He gave me a 24 day supply but said that it might take over a month's worth of the medicine for it to "Kick In".
223152 tn?1346981971 Bad Rash, Nausea, Anal/Rectal Problems (crapping shards of glass) Lowest Hgb. 10.2. No dose reductions. No rescue meds. No transfusions. Although I was told at Tx start that I would be given rescue drugs for low Hgb if needed, when my Hgb actually did drop and I asked them to get organized in case I needed Procrit, they said they do not give Procrit. They said they would dose reduce by half (1200 mg to 600 mg.) instead of giving Procrit. (I fired that doctor.
299940 tn?1192322967 I've also got some cervical neck issues in C 3-2 from a wreck six months ago ( I never got physical therapy for) I've had nose bleeds recently and gum bleeding too. This made everyone wonder if I had a brain tumor or some other cancer. The scans showing my sinus cyst can cause many of these symptoms? Is that really true??? I've talked to three docs since and they all say it's very likely- or should I push on for some other kinds of testing??? suggestions???
Avatar n tn I wondered if it was related to our heating system as we have forced hot air and it really dries my nose out often to the point I get nose bleeds, but I'm the only one in the house who suffers this smell.
Avatar n tn I did not take it for 3 days thinking that I was having side effects and the ache, pressure returned worse than before and the smoke smell returned as well. I returned to the doc and I am now back on Topamax. The symptoms I was having could be related to my back problem. We will see what happens. I hope this helps someone out there.
Avatar n tn i had to have my cocker spaniel put to sleep on friday 3rd october, two days ago. i got up in the morning and he was lying on his side and could not get up and he was breathing very fast. when i got him to the vets they put him on a drip gave him painkillers and they xray him.He had a white mass on his spleen and liver.
Avatar f tn I didn't see the Dr to ask him about it because he was on vacation, but I also didn't think to ask him of any possible side effects. When I contact the office, I'll post any remarks he has to say about it.
Avatar n tn I was tested by an allergist but had prednisone (steroid) treatment to prevent uh...death... and once I stopped the steroids, I had a reaction on my back to the allergy patch tests that were removed 3 days prior-- the Double-component Epoxy Resin patch reacted with a huge blister and redness, inflamed and angry. Just as you described, the dentist knows nothing, sees nothing, says nothing (love her, she was great otherwise.) The companies will not release the ingredients due to patents.
1069625 tn?1262643124 I had to leave work two years ago due to the effects of Hep-C and have been going nuts with boredom ever since. I'm saying this to point out that in order to accomplish the above mentioned tasks, I had to do extensive research. I know of several former or current users of alcohol who choose to disbelieve that alcohol can trigger relapses of Hep-C.
Avatar n tn (I used the dosepak 4 times in a 10 mth period) help temporarly but the side effects to the rest of your body are not worth it to use of steroid based drugs on a long term basis and the EK comes back. I've found that it isn't stress that triggers my outbreaks as is the things I do or eat that may cause inflammation in my body; to include my hands, that I have to monitor.
Avatar n tn Hi I had the same itch in my ears and nose. The itch and the clear fluid that leaked out drove me bonkers. I tried numerous creams that were prescribed by my doctor. Nothing worked. Then I went to a different doctor and he recommended a lotion called Ectoson regular 0.1%. BINGO!!!! the eczema in and around my ears and nose is gone. I apply a bit of it to the affected area 1-2 times a day and around 4-6 days my rash was just about gone. I've only been on this stuff for 3 weeks now.
Avatar n tn These bumps are NOT clustered except for the occasional two side by side. They are absolutely worse on my right leg than the left. That leg was right up against my husband all night long, and again - he's bump/itch free. He has been outside, and even worked in the garden two days ago in the early morning. He went to work yesterday, but works indoors, in a temperature controlled office - no chemicals.
Avatar n tn I read an article in US News World Report (an issue about 2 or 3 months ago) about vaccines and their side effects. Gaurdasil had the MOST side affects of any of the vaccines. There are young girls and women who have had non-stop headaches, blurred vision, and other symptoms since receiving their shots. Maybe you might want to hold off on the last 2 Guardasil shots? If you are not sexually active and plan on practicing safe sex, you aren't at a risk for HPV - which is an STD.
Avatar n tn It is a sleep aid medicine that has had some users complaining of this side effect. Go to and read some of the posted comments. I too am suffering with this annoying condition. I scrape, brush and gargle with Biotene. This regimen helps for about 3 to 4 hours but it always returns. I took Lunesta for a couple of times but not 2 nights in a row. Thats the only common thread I can see. Hope this helps.
356518 tn?1322267242 I became opened minded to anything that would relieve pain with minimal side effects. Headaches took days out of my week, so I learned to manage that area also. I hope the people here are just straight forwarded, honest as possible, and have a little sense of humor, it goes a long way now a days.
147426 tn?1317269232 09/15/07 The first diagnosing Neuro recommended Rebif which I declined because of side effects. After I declined Rebif the only thing he said to me on the phone was "well, good luck then". I found all the detailed copies of my LP and Blood tests and have all the MRI pictures here in my home. I took LDN for one year with no improvement in my left sided weakness but I did get an overall sense of well being.
Avatar n tn I've tried iron supplements recently which have alleviated a bit of tiredness though I stopped after having serious side-effects like nausea and black stool. Not sure whether I should try it again as iron supplements are supposedly relatively toxic to Thalassemia patients with iron building up easily in the body. I really hope doctors would give more research into BTM as it has substantial symptoms.
Avatar n tn It will go on for a couple months, maybe, and then as suddenly as it appeared, go away. I am not on any medication but take a Benadryl every night for nose stuffiness. (and have for quite a long time). My legs are actually hurting now from scratching so much. One time I found (I've tried them all) an anti-itch over the counter cream (generic) that helped a lot but haven't been able to find it since.
Avatar f tn Gabapentin capsules made me gain 15 pounds, and they have undesirable side effects. I have had to get off the expressway, and run into the gas station to get ice from the pop machine to rub on my arms, becasue the itching was so intense and relentless. It is soooo wonderful to be free of this terrible affliction. Now if I can just keep the arthritis at bay for a few more years!!! Best of luck to you.
Avatar n tn Me too, My broke out recently after Dental work, after several tears with out the hives, it is back with a vengance, I am on a antihistimine Hydroxy ,it seems to have stopped some of the itching but the big wealts from the Hives are still there,I didnt realise water could do this,I know when my body channges temperature its worse. I read these posts with interest and will try anything, PS The effects of the Anti histimies is awful I feel either Hyped and then worn out, darent Drive.
Avatar n tn About a year ago I started developing pain on the right side of my head only. No doctors have been able to tell me what's wrong as I have experienced swelling in various areas and an incessant clenching of my teeth with most of the pressure being exerted on the right side. Headaches come and go, and I've been experiencing mild dizziness from time to time. I have also had a fever of about 101 that never seems to exceed that, but comes and goes as well.
