Steroid treatment

Hi, I’m new to this site. I’m currently having steroids for 5 days but at the end of day I’ve contracted an infection so I’m waiting to see what they suggest. Just wondered if anyone has had this problem?

Welcome, @clare-gairn ,

The high dose steroids are prescribed to help your body deal with the inflammation associated with a relapse. There’s a lot more information here, which might answer your questions:-

I hope they help you. I feel that they really helped me and were part, along with remitting, of me working to be stronger and stronger. I had a bug recently, along with someone at home, they had it way worse then me! I hope your bug is better than you fear. Jx
