Just want to vent. Prednisone and entocort are doing a number on me. My skin feels tight from either fluid retention or swelling all over my body. I have wierd pains and numbness, dry skin, headaches, muscle spasms, mood swings, moon face, etc. Don't know if its the swelling or what. I hate this and it sucks. I have a horrendous headache and feel like I'm 100 years old tonight. I am tapering off the pred and it seems like my symptoms have gotten worse: fluid retention and at night I have palpitations and feel like I can't breathe. Still having symptoms from crohns so I know these meds aren't working. Stress at work does not help. Sorry. I just needed to vent. I am soooo tired of people telling me my face is swollen; like I don't know it already. I am feeling really down although I keep trying to remember that it could always be worse.
