Headaches - Prednisolone
Hopehope20 · 17/07/2021 08:40
Hi, I am 35 and got covid for the second time this year. I have been suffering from a 24/7 headache ever since that no over the counter pain killers even touch the sides on. I had bloodwork and a CT scan yesterday which came back normal. I have been prescribed a 5 day course of Prednisolone starting today.
Just wondering about the side effects of this, is there anyone that could talk me through what side effects you experienced on this steroid? I have scared myself by googling...
If taken for headaches....did it work?
Thank you so much x

No advise on the meds however my daughter suffered almpdt constant headaches for over a year. She had an MRI, saw a peadatrician etc.
Eventually in desperation I took her to an osteopath who took one look at her and realised her spine and neck were out of alignment. 6 weeks of treatments and now only the occasional headache.

Another headache sufferer. When I had chain migraines I was prescribed 100mg of sumatriptan and 50mg of cyclizine to take with daily amitryptlyne. Broke the chain. I now take the amitryptlyne every day and the other drugs as needed.
Hope your steroids work @Hopehope20 .... constant headaches are terrible.

I was in Pred for 2 years 5mgs you shouldn’t get the side effects because your not in it long enough and the dose is too low anything over 5 is side effect teriority (spelling) both my son and DH have had these courses one for asthma, the other for the after effects of Long COViD. I hope that helps
