Can Anyone Explain This?

Recommended Posts

I was in er last night. Had 2 bags saline and a steroid shot. Today I don't feel any better. Bp all over the place. In 15 minutes time I had readings of 160-103 sys. To 105/72 dia. Heart rate from 117-153. This *****. I'm shakey. Weak. Nauseous. Headache. Sound sensitive. All the good stuff. Shouldn't the saline have helped? My labs showed my potassium at 3.1.

My guess is the steroid shot is causing your current issues. It can cause side effects in otherwise healthy patients, so I'd imagine we are even more susceptible. It could also be that your HPA axis has been temporarily thrown off from the steroid and hasn't kicked back in properly yet.
