Happy New Year!

Just wondering if anyone else also has asthma on top of endo and do you find any relief from the steroids (prednisone)?

I’ve recently had a flare up of my asthma due to getting a winter cold so doctor has put me on 40mg x 5 days. I have noticed my endo symptoms have been very calm the last few days and wondering if there is a connection between the two?

Prednisolone is an anti inflammatory drug and is not used in endo treatment whereas heavily used in asthma within your inhalers. Endo causes inflammation and so it would of helped a little. Sadly endo will not be eased long term by the drug while your asthma inhalers will continue the action of it in your lungs.

Thanks ccsmith ! It has been very settled now for a few days. I don’t like taking the steroids at all but it’s a tiny bonus when I get some relief from the endo pains!

I found steriods made my pain better because the steriods gave me a false high/very happy feeling if that makes sense.
