Well I've been on steroids for over a month now. Last week and a half being iv salumedrol or whatever. I have been on steroids many times before and know how terrible the side effects can be but I'm having a hard time dealing with them this time. I haven't slept more than an hour in the last two weeks. I have hot flashes like 25 menopausal women combined and I pace around like a crazy person ready to freak on anyone who crosses me. I feel like a walking zombie and do not like it. I'm wiped and I'm wired and I'm afraid I'm going to freak out. Not to mention the fact that I blew up like a whale and all I want to do is eat which in turn makes me sick hence being on a liquid diet! I know this is all normal but I will be on steroids for several months due to tapering. I'm not sure I can handle it anymore. How dangerous is it to just quit taking them with no tapering? If I can't do this...does anyone have any suggestions? I'm going crazy...thanks!
