SIDE EFFECT OF WYSOLON STEROID TREATING CHRONS Posted By SUDIP RAY Date : 05-May-06
mY WIFE WAS suffering from Chrons disease and was going down day by day. But Thank God, we have found out a Gastroentrologist ( Dr. Chetan Bhatt) who is also attached to Jaslok Hospital. Under his treatment my wife is recovering from the symptoms. She was put on Omnicortil steroid (30 mg. dose each day) for 3 months and thereafter dose reduced to 10 mg. per day(at present). But a new problem (may be side effect of steroid) has appeared. Her's hand and leg muscles have become thin, viens and arteries are clearly visible under her skin. She is feeling very week while walking. Sometimes blood clotting is observed in the legs. I am very worried and want to know whether these symtptoms are temporary. If I want to consult any Doctor, should I show it to Endocrynologist or any other Gastro sepcialist Can u please help me out by give Doctor's name and phone no. in Mumbai?
