Ek was vir 2 en ' n halwe week op kortisoon, 20mg pulmison en 10mg van ' n ander kortisoon, vir verkoue en koorsblare in my mond. My gesig neig of dit geswel is asook my bene, asof daar nie sirkulasie is nie. Is dit water en is dit weens die baie kortisoon? Wat kan ek neem of doen?

Hi Tash

Is jy steeds op die kortisoon? Hierdie is een van die newe-effekte wat met verlengde kortisoongebruilk waargeneem kan word.

I get every two weeks venofir injections but because I am allergic to it, I also het kortizoon injections and a drip before the venofir. But I struggle with bad body pains but also with swelling. This is something they suspect I will het for the rest of my life, beacause I struggle to absorb the venofir.
Wont the kortizoon on long term be bad for me?
