Steroid taper bronchitis

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.

Thyroid storm is a life-threatening condition of the hyperthyroid state. 26 It most commonly occurs in patients with Graves' disease but may also occur in those with multinodular goiter or toxic adenoma. 27 It is treated by correcting the hyperthyroidism and treating the precipitating events. 26 Correction of the hyperthyroid state involves using drugs such as propylthiouracil or methimazole (Tapazole), beta blockers or corticosteroids, which decrease the peripheral effects of thyroid hormone and the conversion of thyroxine (T 4 ) to the more potent triiodothyronine (T 3 ). 22 , 26 Dexamethasone can be used for that purpose, at a dosage of 2 mg intravenously every six hours, and can eventually can be switched to an oral dosage of 2 mg every six hours. 28

The idea of steroid injection is perfect, in my view, especially if your son has had no problem with elevated pressure in the eye while using steroid eye drops and oral steroids. This will probably have to be done with very brief general anesthesia; it is unlikely that a 10 year old boy will tolerate one or bilateral injections awake. I would remind you, since you have probably already taken Mike's advice and read material at  http://  about pars planitis, that steroids may not be the definitive solution, and that continuing, open-ended use of steroid will create as much mischief as the pars planitis itself: cataract, possible glaucoma.

Dr. Montgomery: In my experience we will occasionally try the epidural steroid injections. That would typically be in a group of patients having more neurologic symptoms, perhaps having radiating pain into their shoulders or arms, or some numbness and tingling. Maybe we're concerned about some nerve root compression. I have not had as much experience with the facet injections . Our pain doctors, our physiatry colleagues, who do a lot of pain management, would try things like nerve root blocks or trigger point injections . I have not seen as much of the facet injections in the cervical spine as I have in the lumbar spine or the low back.
