Hi, I m newly diagnosed with RA. Im 30. I initially had a 120 steroid injection and then about 9 weeks later i had to have another. The 2nd one only worked for a short while. To tide me over till my comby of drugs hopefully work more my consultant gave me some predisolone to take so i could go back to work, i started on 7.5mg a few days ago but today i have felt so so dizzy and very anxious with a really bad head.
I have been looking on the internet to see if i could reduce to 5mg tomorrow as i really dont want to feel like i did today again and i came across this site.
I know i should ring the hospital and get advice but i know i wont be able to get hold of any1 in the morning and just wondered if any 1 might be able to give me some advice.
i m panicing as i have been looking on the internet and i dont want too reduce my dose and my RA symptoms return as bad as what they were in the beginning or suffer from the adrenal insuffiency i have been reading about.
If any one has any advice i would appreciate it, i know i have only been on oral dose for a few days but i dont know if i need to consider the steroid injections and that means i have to be weaned off them?
This might seem like a silly question, im just so new to this and its all very confusing and very scary.
