My last infusion of Solumedrol. I have terrible side effects from this stuff – flushing, hot flashes, weepy and irritable, upset stomach, lack of appetite, bone and muscle pain, insomnia, and headache. Have insane heartburn now, too.
Tomorrow I start my 2 week course of oral prednisone. Still high dose. The eye pain, though, is virtually gone. My vision hasn’t returned to normal, but I was told that could take some time. As long as the steroids help it to stop getting worse, I’m fine.
