Good Old Steroids
I've been taking prednisone since I had a bad flare in March this year and I'm nearly completely finished, down to 1mg this week. My rheumy wanted me to stay on them a bit longer this time to curb the disease activity and boost my chances of "remission". I know the usual side effects, increased appetite, increased risk of diabetes etc but I've noticed since being on them my nose runs like a tap. Not just sometimes but pretty much every time I eat any food! Tonight I bent over into the cupboard and I saw what I thought was water dripping on to the floor...yeah turns out that was my nose. Charming right?!
Just wondering if anyone else has had any bizarre side effects from the prednisone?
