6-7 weeks ago I had poison ivy so badly my face swelled and I had blisters in my mouth and nose. The doctor gave me a steroid shot and then a two week long double strength dose of prednisone. It did help me get over the swelling and I can't say I felt like it was the wrong treatment but I had terrible side effects: sweats, shaking, exhaustion, bloating, appetite(too much or too little), crabby, ok, downright mean moods.(I confess I about bit Brooklynborn's head off in an email) Most of that passed within a couple weeks after finishing the meds but now I find I am continuing to gain weight, have odd spells of shakiness and random sweating, feeling completely stressed out and tiredness. I am still being active, maybe more so, and while I don't record my food everyday, when I do, I don't seem to be eating enough to explain a 4 pound gain. My husband theorizes that this is because of the steroid shot which the doctor said could last 3 months. Anybody had these problems after steroids?
