Last month when I saw Dr U. He gave me a dose pack of steroids to try out. Basically to see if the headaches went away.
I had a real hard time going to pick up the steroids because during recovery last year I had the steroid induced crazies. The husband did not want me to try the pills because he was concerned with the crazies. ” what are we going to do if you go crazy mad again?” So I decided not to take it. The headaches were starting to come back more often and more intensity.
I finally picked up the prescription last week and started the pack. First day jitters headache was there, by day 2 half way though the day the headache was a normal everyday headache, still had the jitter, by day three the headaches was almost gone. What I mean by that was I did not take any pain Meds until 10 pm that is a first! On the 4th 5th days, was feeling ok. However the headaches started to come back and on the 6th day back with a neck ache fever and headache. Yesterday was my last dose and have been dealing with no energy and headaches.
I guess I will call Dr U tomorrow and let him know what I found with the steroids. The concern I have is that he will want me on an extended period of steroids, which means all kinds of side effect. So I am just not sure what to think. Will let you know when I know.
