IV Steroids

Am I right in thinking that once you have had an intensive course of this it lowers your immunity. I seem to be catching every cold and cough that is out there and can’t get rid!!

@jamms, somehow, you’ve managed to start this post in the “Feedback” forum. I’m not sure many people come in to that forum, so I’ve moved it here!
Anyway, I don’t believe Steroids make that much difference to our immune systems. Having MS, which is an auto-immune condition, means that we have a compromised immune system anyway.
The Steroids given are actually created by our bodies, but not in such a high dosage. They’re given to assist our bodies in recovering from a flare up of symptoms.

Hope this helps
