Hi. has anyone ever had severe mania and the only thing i have noticed that helps is when they give me IV steroids. then i get complete relief. i can sleep. my thoughts slow down, i am not paranoid. (i know i must sound crazy)
i just made a clear correlation with my mania and IV solu medrol. when i got the 3 day iv pump i was the calmest i have been in years??? same with 100 mg of solumedrol daily. calm.
it's when they steroids leave my body. about 2 days after??
i hope this made sense. i can't get my thoughts straight again. has anyone experienced such a think and what and why am i like this?????????????? (i think my doctor does not see this in me bc before i was trying so hard to be calm. act calm) and then i started getting steroid infusions and i forgot about THIS.........now it has been over a week without steroid infusion and i am losing my mind.
sorry if i sound insane. i just feel like there must be a correlation here. to lupus and my mania.
steroids are calming???????????????
thanks ahead of time for anyone who answers. it hurts too much to type again too.
p.s. my pain progresses as my mania does. really badly (thought you should know that)
hope you all are well. (somewhat well)
