Hi I don't post much these days but I do read the posts that others put on here. Ihave AIH/PBC overlap. Was taking prednisolone up to 2 weeks ago. They have been slowly tapered down and am now steroid free. I also take mercaptopurine and urso.
These past 5 days I have felt extremely tired, thirsty and I can pee for England. It gets worse after I have done something like hoover the lounge, walk the dog, even washing up. Yesterday I went to see an Endo as I also have hashimotos disease...I do not need treatment for my thyroid because bloods were in normal range. I explained how I was feeling as I am concerned because I have taken steroids for over a year and my consultant and the endo said that steroids switch the adrenals off not only them but many of the hormones we make naturally. I wonder if it is possible mine are struggling to switch back on.
I feel like crap, I also have headaches and no appetite.....I was so looking forward to getting off the steroids because of the side effects they were having on me, my face was twice it's normal size and I would not go out even to shop....
Am I suffering withdrawal symptoms from the steroids....I wonder, but also I am concerned about the thirst and total exhaustion, also, the possibility it could be my adrenals.
Does anyone have any ideas please.
