Re: Prednisone steroids
I'd be very concerned, too. I took steroids for 10 days for a badly swollen throat only to have 2 years worth of very serious side effects (2 years of respiratory attacks and a sore on my thumb that wouldn't heal...doctor said I could have lost my thumb--no injury, by the way).
Also, steroids can be very dangerous for some people with undiagnosed conditions...Lyme Disease comes to mind...and one of the symptoms of Lyme Disease is a cold or sinus problems that don't go away. And yes, Lyme is in the UK!!
Has your doctor tried prescribing antibiotics? If so, for how long? If not, why not?
Again, I would be very leary of the steroids.
