I started steroids on Tuesday and I've been struggling with the side effects this week. I seem to feel knocked side-ways about 10mins after I take them after breakfast and I get jittery, shaky, speedy, breathless, moody, and a bit detached from reality (to the point where I don't feel safe to drive). It calms down a bit after lunch and I'm able to get on with things a bit more normally, but by the evening I feel really tired and slow. My moods are normally often up and down, but I've noticed some extremes this week. It's making life rather difficult, so I'm hoping that it will calm down as my body adjusts to it. I'm only taking 10mg so heaven help those who get a higher dose!!
