This wek I ended up in the hospital for the first time being treated with IV steroids for what’s probably the worst relapse I’ve had in the 11 years since diagnosis. The steroids seem to have worked amazing on the relapse I am delighted. But I do have a couple of questions that I feel like only those with experience can answer.
First the steroids. I was on methylprednisolone for three days, treatment finished on tuesday when they released me from hospital. What I want to know is, are the weird things I’m feeling just some more MS symptoms that haven’t healed or have arrived, or is this after effects of the steroids. I wouldn’t say I’m experiencing dizzyness or vertigo but i definitely feel like my head is swimming frequently. I’m still queasy (I was nauseous before the treatment started, something I’ve never experienced as part of having MS) and I’m tired and easily confused.
I would have thought that such a short course of drugs would have very limited side effects, maybe a day and a half. Does IV steroids side effects last at length after the treatment has ended or am I experiencing something completely unrelated?
any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks.
