A big hello to my trusty helpers out there..............
Can anyone relate to developing slow gradual onset numbness in their toes and fleshy area of foot beneath toes since being on steroids for their PMR?
I ask in light of my PMR diagnosis February 2014 and more noticeable since very slowly decreasing hydrocortisone Oct 2014 from 30mg & now at 15mg - this is equivalent to 3mg Pred.
Had blood test 6 months ago to rule out diabetes and told it is peripheral neuropathy.
Could this be related to my continued intake of steroids and is it likely to improve once I have successfully weaned taking my medication? Not that is likely to be happening for a long time yet as can't get past 3mg without flare of symptoms returning.
Your usual feedback most welcome as always.
Hugs & blessings once more.
