I thought I would post this warning for any future readers who are on steroids. Don't do anything excessively physical while taking them!!!

Today was the first beautiful day we've had in over a month so my husband and I decided to take a 2 mile hike to a waterfall after I was through with my steroid hangover this morning. It is a moderate hike that I used to be able to trail run. I'm not in great shape like I was pre-RSD where I was running at least 3 miles a day, but I'm not in bad shape either as I've been doing Pilates and trying to stay active.

Anyway, after walking briskly just a little ways with those steroids in my system, my heart started racing and my whole body started itching like crazy. I thought I was going to start crying it got so bad. I think the steroids must get the cardiovascular system really opened up and all that blood flowing throughout my body was not a good thing. I ended up stopping and resting (and itching) every few hundred feet to get back to the car. It has been hours since I got home and I am still itching.

Also, no improvement in my hand at all :(. I'm going to keep hoping anyway.

Best wishes everyone!
