Google how gluten intolerance can cause post nasal drip. I also thought my allergies were coming back (got shots for 10 yrs, every week about 12 yrs ago). For the past year or so my post nasal drip has gotten worse (daily, monthly, any season). Allergy meds, flonase, etc do nothing. Now I find there’s a connection to gluten. I also have other gluten intolerance symptoms that I have always attributed to IBS. I get allergy tested next week just to make sure. The day after the test, I will be going gluten free. I have noticed that my post nasal drip is horrible after I eat processed foods (breads, pizza, etc).
Psychological reactions such as insomnia and irritability are common, but they are certainly not the only prednisone side effects. Some of these adverse consequences, such as osteopenia, diabetes or glaucoma, appear only after long-term use of the drug. Others, such as confusion, high blood pressure or a drop in potassium, can occur on a shorter time frame. The most serious prednisone side effects that may happen within a week or two of use are dangerous blood clots (deep vein thrombosis), blood infections (sepsis) and bone fractures (Waljee et al, BMJ , April 12, 2017 ). We offer a more complete list below.
I was recently put on prednisone to help battle an ear infection
At first it was helping. Then I started flushing on my face and arms. The flushing was so bad it was like the worst sunburn ever. I had to keep cold compresses on it. Then I couldn't sleep and by chance I did fall into a light sleep I would have terrible night mares.
I just quit the Meds having a few days left. And now 3 days later still suffering.
Head feels foggy. Wake up feeling empending doom. Head aches bad.
Hopefully this will pass sooner than what u have read on others post.
