Swollen feet prednisone

Common Questions and Answers about Swollen feet prednisone


Avatar n tn Wondering if either of these could be contributing but swollen feet and lower legs is supposed to be a rare side effect of Imuran but I've had swollen feet and legs since I started taking it...but this is the first time its hurt and gone up so quickly in such an isolated area. PLEASE HELP!!
Avatar n tn Every one in my family thinks i'm a hypochondriac (which i probably am) so they would not advise me to, but i feel i can't just ignore this. Oh and i took the prednisone because of eczema on my feet and hands. Someone's expert advise is greatly appreciated!
1738039 tn?1310735866 She was lethargic when i took her to the vet, had swollen feet, swollen around mouth, pus in eyes, ear tip crustly, Pustles all over back with no hair, crusty thick. Would like to know how to get the crusts to lift? She moans at night and is shaky so i don't know if she is in pain. Does the prednisone stop pain because once she has a pill i notice she seems better? How long does prednisone stay in your system? Im afraid to clean her back it looks so sore. She has pimples on her back.
Avatar n tn 1) I gave Kally a Rimadyl last night at 5:45. Vet was not clear about how long I need to wait to start the steroids -- should I wait 24 hours since her last Rimadyl (meaning 6pm tonight?) or 48 hours? Or is it ok to go ahead? 2 Basically any experiences with this would be helpful. Vet tech said on the phone that if Prednisone didn't help we would need to look at a specialist and surgery. I've read that surgery isn't advised unless the dog really can't walk?? Thanks for your help.
Avatar f tn I have 10 mg Prednisone tabs with me but the directions are to take 40 mg for angioedema and gradually decrease dosage. I know that if I take this dosage I will be up all night but am really uncertain about how much I should take. Using Aveeno to sooth the welts with minimal effect. I empathize with anyone going through this experience. Any suggestions appreciated. Am thinking of thinking an immunologist since the allergist was absolutely no health.
Avatar n tn My husband 6 weeks ago started with sore feet that went into 24hrs later swollen feet discolored with purple and almost a black dolor coming and going, we went to the Er on Sunday evening, and they couldnt figure it out we then went to the family dr the following monday. thought it was some kind of bite (not) and his feet began to peel off in large sections which included his toes.
Avatar f tn has started, too. My ankles and feet were quite swollen this a.m. which I was not expecting, tho' I am aware of the "moon face" bit. (joy joy). Maybe going to work from the bottom up, huh? lol. I guess the good Lord tho't I was getting too vain about my new size (from a 16 down to a 7/8!!!) so is going to deflate me a bit. Oh!! no that is INflate, huh.!! Just an "update", ya'll..
Avatar n tn 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! I don't want to go there again. Any suggestions? Any solutions to the moon face or help with the weight loss?
Avatar f tn HI Michele, I had to stop triple therapy at end of 19 weeks due to side effects. I am at week 21. I have to admit I thought the side effects would go away after tx stopped, never expected some to get worse and others to return. At about week 17 I started to get the same edema of face, hands & feet. With the same rash you describe and my hair is also about 80% gone with more falling out daily just by touch. My skin is itchy and , I have cracks on my feet & hands feel like sandpaper.
Avatar f tn and this has gotten MUCH worse since I stopped taking the Prednisone. I have puffy,swollen hands and feet,which turn bluish/purple when the temperature drops to as little as 60 or 65 degrees.It appears that I have some muscle wasting in my forearms and backs of hands. I also have had sudden drops in blood pressure and subsequent dizziness (80-60 over 40), pain in sternum and bony changes on sternum where ribs connect, and recently a Dr.
Avatar n tn 1. Can taking Panafcorte(Prednisone) orally approx 35 mg per day for an itchy skin rash , trunk , arms , back and hands mask early HIV or ARS symptoms. EG Fever, Swollen Glands. achy muscles? 2. Will this does of prednisone heal a typical ARS rash?
Avatar m tn Last Sunday, I started feeling experiencing moderate aching in my neck, shoulders, back, hips, and knees, along with fatigue and mild headache, and thought I might be coming down with a flu. By Monday night, all the joint pain had moved down into my feet and ankles. By Tuesday night I could barely walk, the pain was so severe I could barely walk, when I went to bed, I started shaking with chills (although my temperature was normal, according to my thermometer).
86664 tn?1291561395 I have had the same issue with swollen ankles / feet for a couple years now. I take Aldactone (Spirolactone) when I remember to. One thing I do which seems to have helped is lay in bath tub of HOT water and place feet up above the faucet against the wall (ie. out of the water). My logic being: blood will flow to the legs in an effort to cool off your body. I then stand in the water as it drains and run some cold water on me through the shower head.
Avatar n tn When the swelling dissipates on my feet and fingers I actually shed the top layer of skin around the swollen area over a period of days, like a blister on the mend. The lip and neck swelling don't itch, but the finger and feet swelling becomes an insane itch without any relief from over the counter anti- itch products. Taking an anti-histamine slows down the whole process. I'm worn out from this process..........
Avatar f tn This was the second bite in a year. My forehead was very painful and swollen, but after a lot benedryl and prednisone the symptoms on my head resolved in 3 days. However, 7 hours post bee sting I woke up with hives on my legs, butt, back and arms. There were no new foods, medications, or detergents. I did bring a new foster dog into the household 3 weeks prior to the hives but have since then found her a home.
Avatar n tn Please tell me if your hands are swollen mostly in the fingers and if your feet are swollen around the bunion area? I thought this was from sugar and wine but I haven't had any alcohol in weeks and my hands/feet are swollen again. I have been cleaning and working a lot with my hands but certainly not my feet!
Avatar n tn The other morning my husband couldnt get out of bed because one foot hurt so bad and was swollen. He also had one spot on his lower back that hurt so bad he couldnt touch it. Emergency room x-rays show nothing. Next morning he woke up and both feet and his index finger were serverely hurting. Next morning after that it was both feet, back, forearm and finger. Chiropractor found bulged disk on 5th lumbar and since he has been seen by the Chiropractor no new symptoms.
Avatar n tn I have the same issues as everyone else. Itchy, swollen lips with a rash often accompanied by swollen eyes. I visited the dermatologist twice this week. The first time, he thought it was a peanut allergy, so I was put on anithistimines; however, while on antihistimines I developed swollen eyes and lips! Upon visiting the doctor again, I was prescribed a topical ointment for the lip area. The doc said that this condition is tricky to diagnose.
Avatar n tn If you cannot maintain a 50-60% humidity put a room humidifier in the bedroom. Run the A/C or heater of your car through the vents on your feet not in your face. Long car or plane trips put your tears in every couple of hours. If you are menopausal or post-menopausal be sure you and your gynecologist maintain optimal hormonal balance. (Many women with dry eyes have dry mouth and dry vaginal canal). If you have joint pain have that evaluated to be sure you don't have Sjorgren's syndrome.
443434 tn?1255894833 Hi Jen! I have noticed that same thing. I've had times were I was really trying to cut back on what I was eating due to the extra weight I have from being on the Prednisone last year. It put 30 pounds on me! When I cut way back, there is less swelling. So there is something else that I am eating that is causing a problem.
Avatar n tn trying to stay at 1 1/2. for the last 2 or so months my feet, mostly my right but lately again both feet and legs are swelling and getting a red rash on lower legs mostly. the rash is not raised. Sometimes it burns and itches and sometimes there is pain in my feet and burning behind my knees. It comes and goes, but my lung Dr. told me to take an extra Lasix when they swell like that. I already take ( 2 ) 40 mg a day. My primary wants to blame everything on my chronic lung condition.
Avatar n tn I have the same problem as this red swollen itchy eyelids. Don't have allergies like this. I do wear contacts--why would they cause this? I haven't been wearing the contacts for days now....
Avatar f tn I have had a swollen clitoris for about one week. At first it was because I masturbated and it was a little swollen, then it gradually got bigger and bigger about the size of a couple of grapes. Moslty on one side of my clitoris. It is now very uncomfortable and accompanied by a yeast infection. I always get small yeast infections by my birth control pills (Errin) but now this is still swelling even more even after my doctor prescribed Diflucan yesterday.
Avatar m tn Her symptoms of rashes, throat sores, joint pain, anxiety, depression, insomnia, volatility, mania, swollen feet, etc. have virtually incapacitated her. She needs a recommendation for a specialist in Birmingham, Alabama whom she can consult and find ways to treat these debilitating symptoms and enable her to get well and go back to work.
Avatar n tn I used to wash my feet & of course hands before going to bed. I would wake up with my hands & feet that were so itchy i would scratch til my hands were swollen and hands & feet burned so bad sometimes even would get a rash due to it. I finally found out that i was allergic to yellow 5 which is in so many thigs such as Mt dew, dial soap (which explains my itchy hands & feet, i used it), shampoos, foods etc.
Avatar n tn I have suffered for 21/2 years with muscle pain, fatigue, fast heart rate, irregular heart rate, low blood pressure, pain in the extremities, light sensitivity, dry eyes, vaginal and urinary infections, abdominal pain, painful and irregular periods, headaches around the temples and eyes, migraine headaches prior to cycle starting, edema, teeth pain, neck pain, constipation, short and long term memory problems, gland in-between breast and armpit swollen and painful, vaginal dryness, PCOS, cold
Avatar f tn I woke up the next morning w/a swollen and itchy tongue and went to the hospital. I was given prednisone, benedryl, pepsid to reduce the swelling and advised to stay away from Ibuprofen. Now I'm starting to wonder if I'm really allergic to Ibuprofen or if its related to these symptoms. I haven't changed anything in my diet, routine, clothing, cleaning habits, and everything is the same. I tend to react well to various medications when I need to take them, but I don't currently take anything.
Avatar f tn Alright, I've been researching up a storm to get this business figured out but without a decent doctor or health insurance it is difficult. I need somewhere to bounce around some questions and ideas so please feel free to comment if anyone has a thought. Here it is... For the past month I've experienced the following symptoms; clubbed nails, aching joints, increasingly weak muscles to the point of absolute patheticness.
504715 tn?1236527858 This is my first entry. I was DXed with Rheumatoid Arthritis about 2 years ago. I am female, age 52. My rheumatologist started me on prednisone and methotrexate. I couldn't tolerate the methotrexate orally - made me vomit then developed an ulcer. Started injecting methotrexate later; did that for about 4 months and saw NO improvement. And to be honest, psychologically injecting that chemical into my body was getting harder & harder to do so I just stopped.
