prednisone nightmare

I have just finished a round of prednisone. I started off with 60mlg. I might have tapered off to fast. Instead of being on them for 3 months i finished them at2.5 months. Now i get numbing in my fingers and legs. Even in head.  Also swealling feet. Its like i have poor circulation. I also get this dripping feeling in my throat and head. Ita the weirdest feeling. Has anybody experienced any of these side effects stra?ge s as they may be?

Hi!
The symptoms can be side effect of withdrawing too fast from prednisolone. Otherwise they can be due to peripheral neuropathy secondary to diabetes or thyroid problems, lupus etc. Severe anemia is also a possibility. Please consult a doctor immediately regarding this.
You may need to restart steroids. Take care!
