Can prednisone cause hand cramps
My AF is under complete control. This is associated with a relapse rate of only 1 in five, far better than more rapid reduction rates. Not responsive to steroids. I am very fortunate to have such a good doctor. But be sure to find out what causes your problems. Cramping when using steroids. You can use capsules too. Can medication for PMR cause cramps in hands and fingers?
Thank you Connie for the info. I'm sorry to hear of your recent PMR diagnosis but at the same time it's good to hear that the steroids quickly relieved your pain. Hi Marc I have recently been diagnosed with lung cancerhaving Chemo and taking same steroids and dosage as yourself.
That false infirmation should be removed. When I was on Remicade, my joint problems just disappeared. Deltasone use in pregnancy and in breastfeeding females is not recommended; patients need to consult with their OB - GYN doctors about the use of this drug.
Hello Mary I'm sorry to hear of your recent PMR diagnosis but at the same time it's good to hear that the steroids quickly relieved your pain. In case your doctor would like to read it the reference for this reduction is: Right up my alley!! I am on 4mg Dexamethasone at the moment, I don't know if that could be the cause or should I worry my neuro signs are going down the pan a little? Medicine March 27, medicine. You see I have not seen him for 6 weeks as i have been in New Zealand.
I shall take your advice and reduce steroids slowly. I get cramps if I do not walk enough and if my calcium is low.
Muscle cramps are mentioned as a side-effect of pred - though it is hard to find reliable sources that include it. But maybe the magnesium dosage is not high enough.
Good time to get out and stretch, if you can. It would just figure I would have a new problem. Tell your doctor right away if you develop symptoms of high blood sugar, such as increased thirst and urination. But one can overdose on this so check with your doc if you need extra. One thing that happens with prednisone is that we become totally dependent on it for our adrenal functioning, and as the levels shift in our bodies, we get very impacted by stress.
