Sorry its been so long with out a response, its the weekend and often slower. I think you should see your dr about this, it just doesnt sound right. If you've picked up an infection, which it sounds like you might have, i think you'll need something to help fight it.

Sorry i couldnt be of more help, it doesnt sound like fun, please call or see your dr.

Take care

Hi,

I'm from another forum but happened upon this post.  I have Lyme disease, which is a bacterial infection, and I agree with supermum_ms that your post-steroid situation sounds suspicious for infection.  Infections cause widespread systemic symptoms like you describe, and steroids can really knock down your immune system leaving you susceptible for picking up a bug.  

Since you didn't react in this way in the past, that seems like all the more reason to contact your doc about this!

Good luck & take care.

My mother just finished 3 days of IV soluMedrol on Thursday.  She woke this am (Sunday) to find her whole right side of her face swollen up to just below the eye and advised it was very painful.  She had very little energy, could not get comfortable and began taking Aleve.  After taking several catnaps throughout the day and evening, her face has now swelled even higher and has brought the bottom of her eye to where it is covering the inside of her eye and grabbing her upper eyelid and not allowing her eye to open fully.  She would not let me call the Dr or take her to the ER this am, but she is now willing to call the dr in the am because of the pain.  Gave her Benedryl, hope this does some good.  This seems severe to me, even after all the reading I have done and the many reactions that are posted on the web regarding this.  Thanks everyone for being here and helping us all out.. :-)
