I went last year end of November, received steroid injection for asthma attack. 2 days later started off by vomiting and had seizure that lasted 6 hours with vomiting at least for 3 hours. Doctors in ER claim it was triggered by the steroid injection 2 days earlier yet my neurological wasn't convinced it was.
people if you taking medicine don't drink alchohol
Hi all. First post here. Came across this thread via google. I know this thread is old, and I don't know if anyone will ever read this, but I too have been wondering if steroid injections can cause seizures. My interest is as follows: 5 years ago I had a cortisone injection in my shoulder. 2 days later I had a short lived visual disturbance. Never had anything like it before. 2 days later I had the same happen. Got it checked out, including brain MRI, which showed nothing odd. The cortisone wasn't considered a factor by any of my Drs (btw, I'm in Melbourne, Australia and just turned 50). Recently, only 3 weeks ago, I had my second ever cortisone injection in my shoulder. 9 days after that, I had the same kind of visual disturbance as before, only this time I then had my first ever known seizure - no memory of 1.5 hours of the afternoon, cracked my head on the concrete floor, woke up in a pool of blood. In the intervening 5 years, no other visual disturbance. Recent brain MRI and CT have again shown nothing unusual. I'm awaiting EEG results and a specialist neurologist consultation, but it seems extraordinarily coincidental that I've only ever had this visual disturbance shortly after cortizone, and once ending with a fairly (to me at least) dramatic finish. I'd love it if anyone can point me to any papers/research/experiences that may confirm this observation and possible cause - as I'm sure you'd appreciate, this is an unsettling time.
My doctor told me it is ok to drink in moderation i have a drink either friday sat sunday depending on which night im meeting up with freinds foes anynody else do this
