Steroid shots.....
What kind of side effects did you experience? If you have GD what did it do to your levels and for how long?

(I was given betamethasone.)

I had stinging from the injection for about 1/2 hour, then for about 24-48 hrs afterward I felt like I was having hot flashes.

I'm sorry i've never been given the shot - but i've heard of ladies saying the hot flash feeling. If you'r sugars have gone up I would talk to them about it today when you get your second. GL!!!

Re: Steroid shots.....
My sugars have gone up and I was woken up at 5:15am because my knees, elbows, and wrists felt like it feels when your foot falls asleep. It would not go away for a few hours.

I also felt sick to my stomach, shakey, and in a daze for a few hours after the first shot.

I am just not sure how much of this is normal? :(

Re: Steroid shots.....
mmmmmm ... i wish i had the answer for you. :( I know when i got 2 bags of steroids after DS was born my sugar didn't go up - they watched them - however ..... i did have the shaky, daze, sick tummy feeling. My joints felt weird but i couldn't be sure that it wasn't just my SLE -- which is why they were giving me the steroids. I know that steroids are similar but i also know the kind you're getting is a little different too. Def talk to them about how you're feeling. Hopefully it'll wear off soon!!

Re: Steroid shots.....
Thanks :) I did a lot of googling yesterday and can't really find much info. Unfortunately the doc and nurses seem pretty usless when it comes to stuff like this.

I am at the point where I am really wondering if it is worth it to stay with this OB. I am just not sure if I feel like the bad outweighs the good. Not an easy decision. I put a lot of thought into chosing the doc I did and feel so let down that she isn't what I was expecting.
