Oh no Anne, I'm so sorry to hear that happened. Glad it didn't turn out to be anything more serious then that though.
I have heard of it causing palps, I get them from time to time anyway, so if I had them at 40mg I probably just ignored it (I've gone through having my doc check mine out though). I'm pretty sure I remember someone saying they were put on a beta blocker to help with them while on pred. But not 100% sure on that. I already take Toprol for high blood pressure, so I think that may have helped me ward some of that off too.
Hope you get a good sleep, palp free tonight! Let us know what the doc says tomorrow!
