Hi all, sorry but another problem with my son's meds. Any comments welcome.
Jay is on 3rd dose 80mg Triamcinolone (Kenalog) Injection. New prob to add to list nose bleeds. I am used to these from nebs and hey fever but he is now having them for no apparent reason. The trouble is it seems to be quite high up in his nose and he is bleeding into his throat and choking on it. Didn't realise this at first as he freaked out coughing up bloody mucus this morning. Kept an eye on him then an hour later his nose started bleeding when we were out christmas shopping. Since them he has been bleeding, coughing and choking intermitently throughout the day. He just coughed up and spat out about a tea spoon of blood on the lounge floor (nice!). So does anyone know if there is a link between steroids and nose bleeds? To top it all - he is completely hyper and thinks he is being really funny at the moment - laughing at just about anything, driving me and his sisters insane and generally being weird and very jumpy. Am glad this is the last dose he is having - can't take much more 'funny'.
