Hello...its me again. As most of yall know, i took sd for a week, and stopped due to the side effects. I went to the doctor yesterday again to do a full checkup. My blood pressure was 145/ 75 (which is still not my normal bp) although the nose bleeds and headaches finally stopped. Ohhh yeah, and sd gave me heart palpitations. I didnt tell the doctor what i took...dont know if it was necessary. They did an ultrasound, an ekg, and a blood test. The doc said the ekg came back okay, but the ultra sound and blood test will take a few days to process. The nurse who did the ultra, said it doesnt look like my heart enlarged (thank God) but im still waiting on the cardiologist's statement. My doc will call me in a few days, to let me know the final results. Anyway, has anyone ever had palpitations from sd or any other steroid? My heart doesnt beat fast, it stays at 68-73, but it is beating unusually harder than normal. Does it go away once my bp lowers, or will i have to take something for it?
